“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
Thank you to all who came out to Camp Cheerful On Saturday, September 22, 2018, for our annual fundraising and friend-raising event! Nearly 300 guests enjoyed a unique happy hour in the horse barn with many of the horses “sticking their necks out” for attention. Guests also enjoyed a delicious dinner buffet, dancing, and many outstanding auction baskets and raffles. The evenings’ weather was even perfect for a bonfire complete with s’mores.
Through the thoughtful support of our event sponsors and guests, over $90,000 was raised 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.
