Auction Recap

By Jeannie Patterson

Grateful. This is the first word that comes to mind when I think about the Kids 2 Camp Benefit Day. Grateful for those who donated such fun and amazing items. Grateful for all the volunteers and staff who contributed time and energy to make this day happen. Grateful for generous bidders.  Most of all, grateful for a God who brings so many together to work and give for the sake of His Kingdom.

It was a beautiful day, not too hot or too cold. The auction tent looked better than ever thanks to our amazing decorators. Over 300 items were auctioned to generous bidders. Total Fiasco, a band comprised of the Vance family, brought upbeat and uplifting live music adding to the fun atmosphere. Caribbean Cuisine and Warm Beach Espresso kept everyone full and satisfied. There were options for the kids as well, to keep them (and parents) happy.

The auction items themselves brought in close to $41,000. Which started with a hilarious bidding war for the very first item, a chocolate fudge cake, culminating in a $2,000 finish! The generosity didn’t end there, between all the different facets of Benefit Day almost $188,000 was raised for scholarships! Praise the Lord!

Our goal was to raise scholarship funds to help give kids a chance to experience camp. Kids who would not otherwise have that opportunity. By God’s grace, and to His glory, this was accomplished!

Pray for the planning that is already in the works for next year – and mark your calendars! Saturday, August 29, 2020.  Hope to see you there!

This is God’s Place

God chose Warm Beach Camp to be the home of The Lights of Christmas! He chose the people to start this amazing experience to share the true message of Christmas. He fills the staff with His love and joy so that it pours out of us to the community to soften hearts and bring change. The world is a dark place, and the last couple of years have been difficult! But no matter what, when you drive through The Lights ...

Horses: Life Impact

If you have ever felt a horse’s warm breath on your skin or breathed in their scent as you hugged their neck while laying your head on their side, you will know that horses have a way of reaching deep into your soul. They bringing comfort to places in your heart that may be buried under layers of grief, bitterness, rejection, fear, or hurt. Our goal at Warm Beach Horsemanship is to provide as many opportunities as possible for people ...
