We are proud to announce that 50% of proceeds will be donated to SEMAP!!!. We will also be donating 100% of proceeds from the Silent Auction!
We at GRATITUDE believe in healthy, active, and interconnected local communities. We believe that good citizens engage their communities, take part in the local economy, and enjoy the unique natural splendor that exists everywhere that people call home.
When we began looking for a non-profit partner and beneficiary for this event, it was a prerequisite that the organization be aligned with these goals. We are both fortunate and excited to have found just such an organization.
The Southeastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership (SEMAP) is dedicated to preserving and expanding access to local food and sustainable farming in Southeastern Massachusetts through research and education. They promote local farmer’s markets in the South Coast region, work with public schools to bring healthy food to students, and support local farmers, restaurants, and local food vendors.
Following the fantastic example set by SEMAP, we have incorporated a Local Food Bazaar into the fundamental structure of our event. It is our hope that this choice will further the goals of the organization, by introducing new people to the bounty of the South Coast, while also building stronger networks between our area’s growers and restaurants.
Thank you all for your support!
