The eighteenth annual Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction is just a few weeks away! This fun and important event raises funds for the Kids 2 Camp Scholarship Fund, helping make it possible for kids to go to camp. Last year, the auction raised nearly $141,000!
Last year, we also launched a brand new family fun activity to help raise scholarships — the Kids 2 Camp Benefit Run. It was exciting to watch young children, parents, and grandparents alike experience the beauty of God’s nature while supporting a great cause. Invite your family and friends to join you this year and walk, jog or run your way through a scenic race route unique to the grounds of WBC. Benefit Run packet pickup time is 7:30 am on Saturday, August 26, with late registration at 8 am and races starting at 9:00 am.
The auction preview opens at 9:30 am, and Silent Auction runs from 9:30 to 11:30 am. The Live Auction is from 12:30 am to 2:00 pm. The auctions will feature hundreds of items, including things for the yard and garden, dining opportunities, gift certificates, craft items, tools, gift items for kids, vacation packages, sports memorabilia, home furnishings, and one-of-a-kind experiences. The event also has activities for the kids and food concessions on site, this year featuring a lunch buffet with choice of entrée, soups, salads, and delicious dessert.
This is the largest fundraiser we hold each year for the Kids 2 Camp Scholarship Fund. In 2016, more than $220,000 in scholarship monies was given out, helping to bring more than 1,850 at risk children, families and special needs adults to Warm Beach Camp. We are thankful for everyone who helps support this benefit event to bring kids to camp who otherwise would not be able to attend.
