For the fourth straight year, HAC teamed up with the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Cape Cod (HBRACC) to help raise funds for our housing programs as part of the annual Bowling for Beds Fun-Raiser at The Lanes Bowl & Bistro in Mashpee Commons at the beginning of this month.

A total of 20 teams, representing companies in the building and construction trades as well as the banking industry, came together for a night of fun and spirited competition. A portion of the proceeds raised went to support HAC.

Wood Lumber Company of Falmouth repeated as champions with Shepley Wood Products in Hyannis and Falmouth Lumber coming in second and third, respectively.

Diane Pratt, the executive officer for HBRACC, called the partnership between HAC and her organization “a natural fit, as both of our agencies are involved with providing homes to residents on Cape Cod… As part of our civic responsibility, we believe in partnering with other nonprofit agencies whose missions are closely aligned with ours.”

Home Builders Association Goes Bowling for HAC

Posted by Chris Kazarian on Fri, Apr 14, 2017 @ 04:59 PM
DSC_1952 - Copy-1.jpgAmong the teams that returned for this year’s Bowling for Beds fundraiser was Shepley Wood Products. On the sleeves of their shirts were the words, “Vinny’s Team” in honor of  Daniel Vincent, a 15-year Shepley employee who passed away in a car crash at the end of January.

For the third straight year, local banks, builders, architects and building supply companies came together for a night of bowling to benefit HAC.

Organized by the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Cape Cod (HBRACC), the Bowling for Beds event was held at the beginning of last month at The Lanes Bowl and Bistro in Mashpee Commons, bringing together 20 teams vying for the right to be called the best. That honor went to Wood Lumber Company of Falmouth, which took home the top prize, besting Beacon Marine Construction of Mashpee, and Coastal Engineering Company of Orleans, which took home second and third, respectively.

Together, they helped raise more than $4,300 that went to support HAC’s housing programs on Cape Cod and the Islands. “Our mission is to support homeownership on Cape Cod and its trade members, through legislative, educational, business and civic endeavors,” said Christine Duren, executive officer of HBRACC. “And what better way to demonstrate our members’ commitment to making homeownership and safe, quality shelter accessible to all than supporting the good works of HAC.”
