The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce and the Gloucester Schooner Festival Committee will gather at Maritime Gloucester on Wednesday, November 28, at 3:00 pm to present checks to two local organizations in support of their programs serving young people on the water. The Gloucester High School Sailing Program and Gloucester Museum School’s Project Adventure Summer Camp will each be the recipients of $1,500 donations from the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce from funds raised through raffle sales and sponsorships in conjunction with the 28th Annual Gloucester Schooner Festival held during Labor Day Weekend, August 31 to September 2.

“Thanks to the great fund-raising efforts of a dedicated Schooner Festival Committee, and the Committee’s strong support of Cape Ann’s youth sailing and rowing programs, we are pleased to be able to offer this support to two great local organizations,” said Robert Heidt, C.E.O. of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, sponsors and presenters of the Gloucester Schooner Festival since its inception.

“The Gloucester Schooner Festival is reaching out to these programs that put kids on the water as our way of demonstrating our commitment to those who will be its future stewards–and perhaps even our future schooner captains!” said Daisy Nell, Chairperson of the Gloucester Schooner Festival Committee.
