Figawi Gives Back
Figawi was founded in 1987 and sponsors an annual glamourous ball and an internationally known sailboat race from Hyannis to Nantucket and back over Memorial Day Weekend.
Figawi’s mission is to give back to the community and money raised from the events is awarded to Cape and Islands charitable organizations.
