Cape Wellness Collaborative and Cape Cod Women's Music Festival

About a year ago, I met with one of the Cape's talented musicians, Sarah Swain. Sarah discussed her mother's battle with cancer and her dream of creating an organization on the Cape that could provide integrative therapies for patients confronting cancer treatment. Not only assist with funding, but also be a resource and create a network of providers that provide the therapies and services.

Well; after a year of careful planning; including the selection of a fantastic and dedicated board of directors, we've founded the Cape Wellness Collaborative. Our kick off fundraiser is the third Cape Cod Women's Music Festival, which will be held on May 17 at the historic Cape Cinema in Dennis. Our headliner performers are Sarah Lee Guthrie and her husband Johnny Irion, but the festival will also include a lineup of great local performers, including Sarah and the Oh Boys. Zoe Lewis will be our Master of Ceremonies. Also expect some surprises! Music, food, drink and fun for a marvelous cause.

Please check out our websites at and You'll find a great deal of info about our new organization, the services we'll provide and the festival. We hope you'll purchase tickets!!
