What is the “Dime for Time” Program?
Beginning in January 2014, we again pledged a multiple of dimes per each guest visit to benefit the American Cancer Society for breast cancer research. We multiply the number of initial guest visits by five and previous guest visits by a factor of ten! With about 75% of our Captain Lord Mansion guests being repeat visitors, the amount we donate adds up! Between 2010 and 2013 we raised and donated over $17,000 for breast cancer research. Thus, we offer many dimes for breast cancer research to give women more time!
This original breast cancer fundraising event was created five years ago to honor Bev’s sister, Lois Ann Fincher, who passed away in 2003 after a ten-year long battle with breast cancer!
The “Dime for Time” Campaign culminates each year on the last Sunday and Monday of November (Nov. 30 & Dec. 1, 2014) when selected New England area breast cancer survivors receive a complimentary two-night stay (A Breast Cancer Survivor Escape) at our intimate Kennebunkport Bed & Breakfast. We provide the ladies and their husbands or close friends with 2 nights of complimentary lodging, 2 delicious breakfasts, a reduced price dinner at On the Marsh, a local fine-dining restaurant as well as surprise gifts. One of those gifts is a “HugWrap.” We discovered this remarkable item and its creator Brenda Jones when she was invited to the very first survivor weekend. I recommend that you click to her link and read her remarkable story.
We are building to a 5th year of fundraising success in 2014!
Your innkeepers, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield
