Latham Annouces Playhouse Raffle Winners!
During the months of June and October you may remember purchasing raffle tickets for the charming yellow replica of Captain Elisha Bangs' home on Latham Centers' school campus in Brewster built and designed by Cape Associates. Latham Centers had a goal of $10,000. For the raffle Latham Centers sold approximately 1,700 raffle tickets to some 600 individuals, raising $13,000. This number is truly astounding, and all ticket proceeds will help enrich programs and services for the children and adult residents living at the Latham School and Latham Residences. Your participation has helped to make the lives better for the individuals with complex special needs, including Prader-Willi Syndrome, who reside at Latham Centers. The highly anticipated winning ticket was drawn on October 21st, 2013.
Claudia and Bruce Drucker of Wellfleet, the winning couple, have been enamored by the detail of this replica since they first saw it on the side of Route 6 in Brewster. Annually, the Druckers have purchased raffle tickets for the Cape Associates Charity Playhouse Raffle, supporting a slew of non-profits on Cape Cod. On Halloween Day the playhouse landed at its home in Wellfleet near town center. Gushing about how the design of the playhouse mirrors the design of her own home, she elaborates, "I plan on creating a garden of daffodils surrounding the playhouse, and working with my grandchildren picking stencils and paint for the currently unfinished interior. I look forward to when it will be fully furnished and an established part of our property." Click HERE to view the article from the November 7th, 2013 Provincetown Banner.
