Annual Generous Cape Reception celebrates generosity throughout SWFL

The Community Foundation invites the Southwest Florida community to an evening of networking, celebration and generosity at the 2018 Generous Cape Reception. The annual event unites recipients of generosity — our local nonprofit organizations — with those who give so generously — our business and community leaders. The celebration will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 22 at the Cape Coral Yacht Club on 5819 Driftwood Parkway.

During the Generous Cape Reception, six people will be recognized for giving back to the community, and one extraordinary philanthropist will be presented the Elmer Tabor Generosity Award. Finalists for this special award are Dr. Brad Middaugh, Karen Scott, Scott Kashman, Elaine Green, Keith Grossman and Gloria Tate. All nominees are known for their outstanding service in the community, have a record of exceptional generosity, show civic and charitable responsibility and demonstrate leadership that inspires others to a life of generosity. Grants will be awarded to local nonprofits, and the foundation will pay tribute to outgoing board members.

“The Generous Cape Reception is a very special event that celebrates what’s at the heart of our foundation — generosity,” The Community Foundation CEO Michael Chatman said. “It’s a feel-good evening recognizing and connecting outstanding individuals, companies and organizations to inspire generosity.”

Guests will enjoy a musical performance from the Southwest Florida Symphony Trio, heavy hors d’oeuvres and beverages. Tickets are $65 in advance. Space is limited, so attendees are encouraged to register online in advance at
