Nonprofits survive and thrive on the Cape thanks to strong support from members, businesses, andWeb_Damselfly_Susan_Carr foundations. It’s important to recognize longstanding business support for local causes. For example, The Cape Sea Grille in Harwich Port recently hosted the 11th Annual Spring Winetasting Dinner to benefit the land-saving work of the Harwich Conservation Trust.

Not only did the award-winning Cape Sea Grille offer a delicious dinner and exceptional service, but owners Jen and Doug Ramler also reached out to other local businesses which supported the fundraiser with donations of food and wine, including Ed and Susan Ring of Ring Brothers Produce, Dave Carnes of Chatham Fish & Lobster, Matt O’Brien of William & Co., Matt Schultz of Classic Wines (Martignetti Company), Lynne Barnard of Horizon Beverage, Don Mitchell of Ideal Wine & Spirits, Carol Bosch of MS Walker and Anne Morello of United Liquors (Martignetti Company).

It was a great evening in support of a great cause. With strong business support, the Harwich Conservation Trust and other land trusts across the Cape are able to save land that protects water resources, walking trails, scenic views, wildlife habitat and other natural elements, all of which define our unique sense of place, hold us here, and draw countless visitors. Thank you Cape Sea Grille and the many generous businesses that support nonprofits. Here’s to a prosperous summer season for all.
