Figawi Charities distributes $40K to local organizations

HYANNIS — The leaders of several local charities and other organizations were on hand at the Cape Cod Maritime Museum on Tuesday to receive donations handed out by Figawi Charities Inc.

Largely sponsored through private donations and sponsors from the annual Figawi Ball, which accompanies the famed boat race across Nantucket Sound, Figawi Charities gave more than $40,000 to more than 20 charities on the Cape and Nantucket, said Leo Fine, the charity’s president.

Among the recipients at the ceremony, complete with wine and appetizers, were Holidays for Heroes, Latham Centers Inc., Wellstrong, Cape Wildlife Center, Cape and Islands Emergency Medical Services System and Nantucket Community Sailing.
