Fundraising Events

Fairwinds would not be able to fulfill its mission without the tremendous support and generosity of our community. We are pleased to announce that in 2019 we will be featuring several exciting new and returning events, which will enable us to continue to raise funds for the critical counseling services we provide to the Nantucket community. We are exceptionally grateful for all the efforts to put on our previous events – An Evening with Patrick J. Kennedy (2018), Bike Nantucket (2016, 2017), the Summer Socials (2010-2013), and The Nantucket Italian Food Festival (2014). Without this incredible foundation, we would not be able to move forward and provide essential services for the families of our island.

“2014” Society Events


In 2014 Fairwinds was able to turn itself around through the hard work of the staff and board and thanks to the support of the community. The “2014” Society was started as a small group of supporters who have pledged financial support to Fairwinds’ operational and program needs.

Events are held twice a year.

Please contact us to learn more about the 2014 Society.
DATE: TBD 2019
