HAC Annual Events
Telethon for HOPE (Thursday, December 13, 2018)
The Telethon for HOPE is a major fundraiser to support Housing Assistance Corporation’s programs and services with a goal to give HOPE to all our clients we serve on Cape Cod and the Islands.
Over the past year, we have given hope to more than 5,100 Cape Codders, including 2,955 families with children. HAC offers a full continuum of housing programs throughout Cape Cod and the Islands that are focused on:
- Reducing and preventing homelessness
- Promoting self-sufficiency and empowerment
- Increasing the region’s affordable and attainable housing inventory
HAC's Annual Dinner & Volunteer Recognition (TBD SPRING 2019)
An evening that brings HAC staff, volunteers, supporters and donors together to celebrate the previous year's accomplishments while recognizing the wonderful work being done in the community by individuals, organizations and businesses that align with HAC's mission to ensure all on Cape Cod have a safe, stable and decent place to live.
Oysters & Champagne (TBD SUMMER 2019)
An elegant evening that gives guests an opportunity to taste locally-grown oysters paired with complimentary sparking beverages at the Wequassett Resort in Harwich. Join us as we celebrate the agency's work in a beautiful setting overlooking Pleasant Harbor.
The Cape Cod Quahog Challenge (TBD SUMMER 2019)
Started in August 2015, the Quahog Challenge is a competition to find the tastiest stuffed clam on Cape Cod. The winner gets bragging and marketing rights for The Best Stuffed Quahog on Cape Cod.
In the past, the event has included live music from Four Guys Cape Cod; samples of Polar Cave Ice Cream and Narragansett Beer; a silent auction and much more. Funds raised go to support HAC's housing programs on Cape Cod and the Islands.

HAC's Big Fix (Barnstable: TBD 2019)
A day of fundraising and community service held annually in one town on Cape Cod. The Big Fix relies on volunteers to raise funds to enhance and enrich our year-round housing services. Volunteers also donate their time to make small home improvements for local veterans, seniors and the disabled.
In 2018, the Big Fix was held in Harwich when over 300 volunteers helped us make a big difference in the lives of 18 homeowners. We also had 9 Fundraising Teams raise nearly $45,000 to support the Big Fix and our year-round housing programs. You can donate to the Harwich Big Fix by clicking this link.
In 2019, the 10th Annual Big Fix will be returning to Barnstable. The Big Fix started in Barnstable in 2010 and has since been to Dennis, Sandwich, Mashpee, Yarmouth, Bourne, Brewster and Falmouth.
