Donate to Summer of Sass!
We love P-town and are fortunate to live within driving distance. I know the challenges of affordable housing on Cape Cod, the ‘new’ money that is buying up property and driving out the working class. Summer of Sass is a wonderful program that deserves more funding (and a house!)
Thanks for a great listen. I hope there is a ‘season 2’ in the works!
