Celebrating Philanthropy on Cape Cod
|Bob Newman of Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club Accepts the Business of the Year Award at Philanthropy Day 2012|
On Wednesday, November 12th, ten Latham Centers Board Members, staff and affiliates will attend Philanthropy Day on Cape Cod in Hyannis, MA, hosted by Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands. This is one of the largest nonprofit events of the year on Cape Cod with some 600 attendees. Offering a variety of educational speakers, workshops and networking opportunities, including a Luncheon Awards Celebration, Philanthropy Day is in its 18th year.
The sold-out conference celebrates philanthropy on Cape Cod and the Islands by bringing together a plethora of philanthropy professionals, philanthropists, volunteers, and community leaders under one roof. Latham has a had a close association with this high-profile day having nominated several past winners in the volunteer and business of the year award categories. And Latham’s own Gerry Desautels, VP of Development and Community Outreach, has served as Event Co-Chair in 2013 and 2014, managing a committee comprised of some 20 volunteers. The committee meets year-round to plan the big day in November which is National Philanthropy Month. Latham is very grateful for the generosity of the community and enjoys giving back through its engagement with Philanthropy Day. To learn more, visit capecodgiving.org.
