Our Committee has had to make the regrettable decision to cancel the 18th Annual Monica Dickens Tournament, scheduled for June 29 at the Pocasset Golf Club. There are too many uncertainties about safety and acceptable golfing and socializing protocols.
You may know that this Tournament is our biggest fundraising event each year, and the funds that it would have generated are needed in this time of COVID-19 more than ever.
We find that the services offered by our organization are increasing daily. We have adapted to providing services remotely — including answering calls to our crisis lines, making outreach calls to isolated seniors and suicide attempt survivors, and facilitating virtual support groups. In the coming weeks we will be expanding our capacity by providing technology to volunteers for use in their homes and by adapting volunteer training with an online platform to reach volunteers no matter where they live on the Cape and Islands.
Although we won’t be gathering at Pocasset Golf Club this June, we hope that you will consider two ways you can support our efforts to meet the expanding need:
- donate to our organization; and/or
- volunteer using our new virtual training and contacting processes.

With your help, we can meet the impact of the coronavirus and expand our mission: to be compassionate listeners who provide connections that make day-to-day living more manageable for those we serve.
Thank you for your continued support.
