The "Dime for Time" Campaign Returns to the Captain Lord Mansion and Kennbunkport for 2011! And, We Are Doubling It!
Inn owners, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield invite you to participate in their second annual Lois Ann Fincher Memorial "Double Dime for Time” Campaign to benefit the American Cancer Society.
For each guest stay from January 1 – October 31, 2011, we’ll pledge two dimes 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! In 2010 we raised $3,000 for cancer research. We are hoping to double that amount in 2011.
The 2010 campaign was created 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 2011 campaign will again allow us at Captain Lord Mansion to make contributions to the Lois Ann Fincher Memorial “Double Dime for Time” Fund throughout the busy season of 2011. Also, many of our 2010 guests made contributions to honor someone they knew who struggled with or currently is struggling with breast cancer.
The “Double Dime for Time” Campaign will culminate on Sunday and Monday, November 20 and 21, 2011 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 firstname.lastname@example.org during the month of September, 2011. We shall only be accepting nominations for women from the six New England states. The email should be no more than 500 words and should give us an idea of why that person should be chosen.
Each woman selected to receive the complimentary two-night stay will receive a bag of goodies and will also be invited to be part of a noon reception where we shall present a check for the monies raised in 2011 to the Maine Chapter of the American Cancer Society.
Also, we will accept any additional contribution for breast cancer research that you might wish to make. Please make checks payable to the Lois Ann Fincher Memorial Cancer Fund.
Your innkeepers, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield
