Latham Centers Debuts Playhouse Charity Raffle at June 1st Wellfleet Harborfest!

May 31, 2013

This summer Latham Centers is the grateful beneficiary of Cape Associates’ renowned Charity Playhouse Project. As the chosen beneficiary, Latham will raffle off a custom-made replica of the Captain Elisha Bangs’ home located on Latham School’s Brewster campus. This could easily double as a garden shed—measuring 10 feet long, 5 feet deep and 8 feet high. Meticulously built by Cape Associates craftsmen, the handsome wooden structure is valued at $6,000!

Wellfleet Harborfest runs from 9am to 4pm on the eastern side of Wellfleet Town Pier this Saturday.  Be one of the first to see the Playhouse and the mini version built for Latham School student field trips this summer.  Both houses can be viewed at the Latham Harborfest booth staffed by new Latham Development Associate Katrina Fryklund—a Wellfleet native.  Admission to Harborfest is free. Playhouse raffle tickets are $10 for one ticket or $20 for three tickets with multiple runner-up prizes—all to benefit Latham programs.  The playhouse raffle winner will be drawn on October 21st at the Fourth Annual Latham Charity Golf Classic at Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club .

More about the Captain Elisha Bangs House:
After years of navigating the world by sea, Captain Elisha Bangs turned his focus to his family and home in 1854, building this Brewster landmark.  From the 1930s to the 1960s, the Captain’s House was the site of the popular Latham Restaurant and Inn on Bittersweet Hill. Now an integral part of Latham’s Brewster School Campus at 1646 Main Street, the Georgian Style structure, its portico, quoins and bay windows are used daily by our amazing Latham community. Since occupying the building in 1970, Latham has served more than a thousand children in need of life-changing residential services and supports on Cape Cod.

Cape Associates—a Cape-based custom building company—has annually constructed a children’s playhouse for charity raffles since 2001. Various landmarks across the Cape have been the subject of Cape Associates’ inspiration and good will. To view past playhouses, visit
