Fun-Raisers


April 8th, 2014

How can you get out for a new adventure, and help people at the same time? Benefit events abound in every community, but in Provincetown we've perfected the art of “fun-raiser”! Whatever interest or favorite activity you enjoy can be found here, and many of them help to raise money for wonderful, hard-working charities! This is only a partial list available at press time, but groups and volunteers and more every year! Come on down and ride your bike, take a run in the country, eat a fabulous meal, see a show, and help the less-fortunate while you're having a ball!

Whatever interest or favorite activity you enjoy can be found here, and many of them help to raise money for wonderful, hard-working charities!
