Cheers to Camp Cheerful

“It’s heartwarming to see where the money is going and to know that every penny stays at camp. Every child should have the opportunity to attend camp. Raising money for kids that can’t afford it is the whole idea behind this.”

Mary Ellen Petras

Cheers to Camp Cheerful

Dinner, Dancing, Silent Auction and Raffles

Saturday, September 21, 2019

Thank you to all who made reservations! We are looking forward to seeing you at the event. Remember, the evening in “casual” attire, so be comfortable. You might want to wear closed-toe shoes for the happy hour in the barn.

We are no longer taking reservations for the event.

Our annual Cheers to Camp Cheerful event will be Saturday, September 21, 2019. Our annual fundraising and friend-raising event held at Camp Cheerful will feature a unique happy hour in the horse barn with many of the horses “sticking their necks out” for attention. Guests will enjoy a delicious dinner buffet, dancing, and many outstanding auction baskets and raffles.

Through the thoughtful support of our event sponsors and guests, over $90,000 was raised at last year’s event for Camp Cheerful to keep the cost of camp affordable and accessible for all families. Community support is critical to help us develop and enhance our camp programs, maintain our property, train staff, and provide the best possible experience for all our campers.
