Through the years, the Cape Fear Chordsmen have supported local charities by donating the proceeds of our annual Christmas concert to Wilmington area causes. Our favorite charity for 2018-19 is Sgt Eugene Ashley Center for Veterans here in Wilmington. The Ashley Center provides “bridge housing” to homeless veterans. While in residence at Ashley, Veterans are provided assistance with food, clothing, toiletries, and laudry supplies as well as transportation to and from appointments, work and other needs. The ultimate goal for each veteran is to transition to permanent housing and independance. The Ashlry Center is a division of the Good Sheppard Ministry of Wilmington. As a direct result of our fund raising efforts and the support of our community, the Cape Fear Chordsmen have donated in 2018-19 more than $3500 to our charities and hopefully we’ll have more in 2019. Thanks to all our supporters!
In addition to donating our resources, we have a group of dedicated men who donate their time and talents through our A.L.S.O. (Assisted Living Sing Outs) program. Most often we perform our ALSO free of charge and at the convenience of the facility. These sing outs are generally requested in the morning or early afternoon when our working members find it difficult to get away but we still manage to muster enough men to present our Barbershop 4 part harmony.
