JFMF Announces Inaugural Bay Creek Day of Giving

Bay Creek Day of Giving

September 24, 2021

The James Fisher Memorial Foundation, Preserve Communities’ charitable giving arm, will partner with the Northampton County Education Foundation to host the first annual Bay Creek Day of Giving on Thursday, Oct. 21, in Cape Charles, Virginia.

The inaugural event will include a charity golf tournament on the Signature Palmer Course, raffle prizes, a silent auction and an Evening Benefit on the Preserve under Bay Creek’s iconic Tree of Life. All proceeds including entry fees and ticketing purchases from the event will go to the Northampton County Education Foundation. Furthermore, the James Fisher Memorial Foundation will match every dollar raised up to $5,000 in an online matching campaign. 

Northampton County Education Foundation provides teachers with much-needed support for projects in the classroom. The foundation also gives a platform for community members to share scholarships, volunteer opportunities and more. With funding being an even larger priority due to the pandemic and students returning to the classroom, there is a pressing need for assistance in this area.   

“The Bay Creek Day of Giving embodies our foundation’s mission to enhance the well-being of those within the communities where we operate,” says Preserve Communities Vice President of Marketing Jennifer Buntin. “We have seen time and time again how the Bay Creek community comes together to help their neighbors in need, so we expect a great turnout for the event. After a difficult year and a half, we hope the proceeds from the event can support school children in a substantial way and become a community staple for years to come.”  

Tickets for the golf tournament include entry into the Evening Benefit, which is highlighted by a “Taste of Cape Charles” menu, live music, silent auction and raffle of exclusive items including vacation packages and specialty experiences. Additionally, supporters who don’t golf can purchase tickets to attend the Evening Benefit only. Sponsorship packages are also available for businesses looking to support the worthy local cause and gain visibility for their brand.
