Cape Cod Military Support Foundation ‘Pot Of Gold Sunday’ This Weekend

FALMOUTH – The Cape Cod Military Support Foundation’s annual Pot of Gold Sunday is this Sunday.

The foundation provides programs and services to military families assigned to Joint Base Cape Cod and the U.S. Coast Sector Southeastern New England.

The proceeds from this fundraiser go to their Children’s Fund, part of the Family Services Program.

Executive Director Don Cox said the monies raised at this event go a long way. “We raise enough money in one day to be able to host a Christmas party for 800 children, provide 2300 backpacks for children going back to school in September, have a Halloween parade and party, an Easter egg hunt and a family skate on Veteran’s Day,” he said.

It will take place in Falmouth at the Coonamesset Inn starting at 11:00 A.M.

Cox points out that many families just need a little help to keep them afloat. “We provide aid and assistance to families in need. If they need a hand up with say a rent payment or an insurance payment. It’s tough for a lot of these young families to be here on the cape with the cost of living.”

The purchase of a $100 ticket entitles guests to a huge buffet and enters them into a raffle with six prizes, including $10,000 in cash, a $5000 golf sponsorship package and a Super Bowl football signed by Tom Brady. Only up to 500 tickets will be sold, greatly increasing the odds.
