What is “The Dime for Time” Charity Fundraiser at the Captain Lord Mansion?

Just by staying with us again in 2012 you will be helping find a cure for cancer!

Inn owners, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield invite you to participate in their annual Lois Ann Fincher Memorial  “Dime for Time” Charity Fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society.

For each guest stay from January 1 – October 31, 2012, we’ll pledge a dime to benefit the American Cancer Society for breast cancer awareness and research programs.  But, we’ll make it even more rewarding!  If guests have stayed with us before, we’ll multiply the number of their visits by the double dimes!  With over 50% of our guests being repeats, the amount to be donated adds up!  Between 2010 and 2011 we raised $6,000 for cancer research.

The campaign was created in 2010 to honor Bev’s sister, Lois Ann Fincher who passed away in 2003 after a long and heroic battle with breast cancer.  We know that one of the most meaningful of Lois’ wishes was for time, time to see her children graduate from college and then to see them happily married.  Thankfully, God granted both those wishes.

The 2012 campaign will again allow us at Captain Lord Mansion to make contributions to the American Cancer Society of Maine throughout our year.

The “Dime for Time” Charity Fundraiser will culminate on Sunday and Monday, November 25 and 26, 2012 when selected New England area breast cancer survivors will receive a complimentary two-night stay at the Inn.  Those wishing to be considered for or desiring to nominate someone for the complimentary stay at the inn should send us an email at innkeeper@captainlord.com during the month of September, 2012.  We shall only be accepting nominations for women from the six New England states.  The email should be no more than 250 words and should give us an idea of why that person should be chosen

Your innkeepers, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield
