Filed in Uncategorized by on July 12, 2017

We are honored to have been selected as a beneficiary of the 2nd annual charity Charter Cup Fishing Tournament, presented by E.J. Jaxtimer of EJ Jaxtimer Builder, Inc. and Sam Baxter of Baxter’s Boathouse and Fish & Chips, which took place on Wednesday July 18th at Baxter’s Fish and Chips in Hyannis.

“I am proud that businesses from our local community are coming together to introduce this new fishing tournament to raise funds for our local nonprofits,” said event co-organizer E.J. Jaxtimer, (at right, with Cape Abilities President and Executive Director, Larry Thayer).  “With my lifelong passion for fishing and philanthropy, I wanted to create a new, exclusive fishing tournament that will benefit nonprofits who are in need of funding on Cape Cod.”

The 2nd Charter Cup Fishing Tournament raised awareness for nine local non-profit programs including Cape Abilities!  A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to Captain Sam Jaxtimer and his Bull Shark crew (right) who helped raise almost $10,000 to benefit our programs and services!!  Ten fishing boats competed to raise a minimum 0f $2500 for their selected charities, and the winning boat with the heaviest catches in each category received an additional $1000 for their charity!   More than $75,000 was raised to help meet the needs of the other eight organizations!

“This event is the perfect demonstration of community leaders coming together to support the efforts of our local non-profits”, notes Cape Abilities President and Executive Director, Larry Thayer. “We all thank EJ Jaxtimer and Sam Baxter for coming up with such an innovative and enjoyable way to bring together so many in support of not only Cape Abilities, but a number of terrific organizations who will benefit greatly from EJ’s and Sam’s wonderful generosity.”
