Coins for Cancer



This interactive fundraiser is held at the Cape Hatteras Elementary School in Buxton.  Students are encouraged to bring in spare change, (with permission for their parents/guardians) to put in a bucket provided for each classroom, for one week in September.  Each day, the classroom’s bucket totals are tallied and announced the next morning.  At the end of the week, the classroom that raised the most “Coins for Cancer” wins a cup cake party.  Date to be announced.

The Annual HICF Chowder Cook-off during the Hatteras Village Day at the Docks celebration will be in September.  Restaurants from across the island will bring their best seafood chowders to the competition.  You can purchase tickets for $5 to enter the chowder tent, taste the various chowders and vote for your favorite! Date to be announced.


Drink Pink
