The first Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire is right around the corner. Before we get too deep in the planning and preparation we wanted to take a moment to acknowledge and thank our sponsors.
Before we even had a plan, we had an idea for a day filled with creativity, technology and hands-on fun and education. We presented this idea to the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod and they provided us financial support and tremendous enthusiasm. The Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, the region’s designated arts agency, ensures the vibrancy of our cultural community by supporting, promoting, celebrating and strengthening the arts throughout the year.
The Cape Cod Technology Council also stepped up to help with the planning, advertising and execution of the event. The Cape Cod Technology Council is a professional business organization that facilitates technology entrepreneurship, promotes technology education for business, encourages technology curriculum at the secondary and higher education levels, and advocates digital inclusion for citizens in our region.
Cape Cod Community College and the Cape Cod Community College Educational Foundation have been immensely helpful in pursuing our mutual goals of education and community engagement. The CCCC campus seemed like a logical choice to locate our first Faire as a way to showcase the innovative and exciting things that are happening in our area. The College has opened their doors to us, by waiving their normal fees, helping with the planning of this event, and supporting the Faire with an innovation grant.
Cape Cod Five is known across the Cape for their philanthropy. It’s a challenge to explain the concepts of Makers and Maker Faires, but they kept an open mind and advocated for us, and we can’t thank them enough. The Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank is an independent community bank committed to serving customers by understanding their financial goals and assisting in their attainment through the provision of high quality financial products and services delivered with the highest level of ethics and superb service, creating a positive work environment and being a good corporate citizen.
Without the financial support and efforts of these organizations, the Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire would not be possible. We still have a lot of work ahead of us but we know with their help, and the dedication of all our organizers and volunteers, this will be a memorable day for all!
Please support our sponsors because they are making all of this possible.
