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.”
