JULY 23 – Save the date!

Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore is hosting an evening to benefit Cape Cod National Seashore on July 23rd 7-9 pm at Payomet Performing Arts Center in Truro. The evening will feature stand-up comic, social and political humorist Jimmy Tingle performing LIVE — "Making Comic Sense".


Friends is thrilled to have Mr. Tingle as our guest. You will not want to miss his unique brand of topical yet timeless comedy. Clean, funny, intelligent humor for all audiences.


Delicious food and drink, a live auction, music and comfortable seating under a tent ensure a fun evening no matter what the weather. Parking is free and unlimited.


All proceeds will go to fund the purchase of mammal monitoring cameras, as well as Climate Friendly Park initiatives such as Beach Recycling programs and a movie on sustainable practices for use in Visitors Centers and on the website.
