Emerging Leaders chart another Shooze Cruise voyage for 2017

The planning is underway for 2017 Shooze Cruise

The Emerging Leaders of St. Francis House are busy planning the 14th Annual Shooze Cruise.  The annual harbor cruise is a highlight of the summer season and will take place on August 9th at 7pm onboard the Provincetown II.

The cruise started as the brainchild of then Emerging Leader – and now Board member – Tim Nolan who brought together a group of college friends, rented a van,  and planned a harbor cruise to help the homeless. The clever idea of asking guests to bring a pair of new shoes to the dock as they boarded, made the idea, and name, even more appealing.  And what an idea it was!

The Emerging Leaders

The Emerging Leaders meet bi-monthly with lots of time for planning in between meetings.  Each year the guest count aboard as well as the collected shoe total have risen.  With a hefty $35K goal this year, the committee is focusing on areas such as:

  • Ticketing
  • Corporate Sponsorships
  • Host Committee perks
  • Raffles
  • Entertainment

Now in its 14th season, this year’s cruise has online ticketing, sponsorship opportunities, and a Cruise Host Committee whose members enjoy expedited check-in, access to a private deck, and on board “swag”.   In 2015, the cruise was featured on WCVB Chronicle.

Get involved now by supporting the Cruise with a sponsorship.  We have a level to suit the needs of your company.

Or simply purchase your tickets and help us spread the word.  Our Emerging Leaders would hate for you to miss the boat! For more information contact, Sharon Lee, Engagement and Events Supervisor.
