Creative Fundraising on Cape Cod
By: Sarah Richards
Who here dreads fundraisers? (Not another magazine drive!)
We were looking for a social (and local!) way to both raise some funds for our kiddos, and to bring new business to some locals. After bouncing the idea of having a wine and oyster night off of Cape Cod Winery owner Erika Orlandella, she was thrilled at the idea! And just like that, we were off and running.
The West Falmouth Preschool held their first annual wine and oyster fundraiser at Cape Cod Winery this past Saturday on a quintessential New England October afternoon. Complete with crisp air, a beautiful sunset, pumpkins, cheery mums, haybales, cornstalks, and fire pits, guests lounged in Adirondack chairs overlooking the vineyard, and sipped their vines under the twinkling lights of the grand white tent on the hill.
The school provided deliciously "stick-to-your-ribs" comfort foods like New England Clam Chowder, pulled chicken sandwiches, and Portuguese "Jagg," for guests to purchase. Accompanying these soul foods were the freshest oysters from the famed (and local!) Megansett Oyster Company. These sweet and briny delicasies were such a hit, we had sold a whole bushel in less than an hour!
Guests were wowed by the musical offerings of the Black Velvet Band (an Irish duo) and singer/songwriter Ric Allendorf throughout the afternoon and evening. The beautifully elegant Pop-Up Bubbly Van provided limited edition bubbly versions of Cape Cod Winery's famous "Mermaid Water" Rose and Riesling, which were a huge hit with the crowd! Additionally, guests were treated to the most gorgeous backdrop (for all their Instagram pics!) complete with a towering white flower wall and (biodegradable) balloon display from Elevated Impressions.
Delicious wine flowed, music wafted through the crisp air, firepits cast warming glows all around, chowder warmed the soul, and everyone enjoyed the company of good friends!
And all this fun for a great cause AND while supporting local businesses on Cape?
Be sure to stay tuned for when our event will be in 2020!

Workout & listen to Andy Berler, Personal Trainer for the New England Patriots Cheerleaders & Founder of BMAX! This event will start with a quick introduction with Andy followed by a 29 minute workout. We will then sample some fine wine while Andy chat with us about how to fit this amazing workout into our everyday routine.
Its challenging enough to find time to run out just for coffee, never mind running out to grab a quick session at the gym. But what if you were able to accomplish your workout at home with guaranteed results?
BMAX (Berler Maximum Activation Xtreme) is a complete less than 29-minute full body fitness program that delivers the five critical health components of physical fitness in EVERY workout: CARDIO HEALTH, FLEXIBILITY, MUSCULAR STRENGTH, MUSCULAR ENDURANCE, AND BODY COMPOSITION!
Every BMAX workout starts with a three-minute dynamic warm up and is followed by the body of 18 exercises. You will perform each exercise for 40 seconds, followed by a recovery period of 30 seconds between each exercise. These 18 exercises are designed and organized to target the six primary muscle groups: chest, triceps, back, biceps, shoulders, and legs while activating every supporting muscle fiber throughout your body.
BMAX was created to bring a complete full-body fitness program to both the home and gym. BMAX requires no machines, delivers quick workouts, and provides amazing variety! And due to Andy’s training principle, MAXIMUM ACTIVATION, you only need to use the program every other day to get on the road towards THE BEST SHAPE OF YOUR LIFE.
Follow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram & Andy's Instagram to keep up with all BMAX fun!
Wine & Cheese in Chatham!
