The Eastham Public Library is pleased to announce that their annual Art Scramble Fundraiser raised awareness and $7,500 for Cape Abilities.
The one-day-only fundraiser took place on Saturday, November 24, 2018 at the Library with additional support provided by the Chapel of the Pines in Eastham and Eastham Superette.
The event featured the unique paintings of noted artists from all over New England.More than 200 of these 5″ x 7″ images were on display in the Turner Gallery at the Library for the month of November, culminating in a public “scramble” into the library to purchase the paintings of their choice. Artists only signed the back of the painting, creating an interesting “mystery” for the purchaser.
“Our Art Scramble benefits a local non-profit, and this year we chose Cape Abilities to be the recipient to help assist all of the people in town who we know Cape Abilities serves so well,” noted Norma Marcellino, Chair of the Eastham Public Library’s Board of Trustees.
“We really appreciate Cape Abilities for what they do for us,” added Willow Shire (above, right), Artistic Coordinator at the Library. “And for helping our Eastham residents and our family members, we really wanted to do something great for the organization.”
“We are so grateful to the Eastham Public Library Art Committee for demonstrating their support through this amazing event,” said Peggy Boskey, Director of Community Engagement at Cape Abilities. “Their generosity will benefit the programs and services we provide for hundreds of individuals with disabilities not only in Eastham but all across Cape Cod.”
Unsold artwork created for this event is still available for purchase, with proceeds to benefit Cape Abilities. For more details or for questions, please contact Debra DeJonker-Berry, at 508-240-5950, or via email at
