Dreams of Summer 2015 – Thank You!

The 2nd Annual Dreams of Summer Gala was a bigger success than any of us could have imagined. After a remarkable first year where a little more than $48,000 was raised, we were floored to see our kids, volunteers, board members, sponsors and gala guests step up to the plate and really knock one out of the park for our kids that rely on the goodwill and generosity of others.

The evening was beautiful and engaging with a busy silent auction, a gorgeous plated dinner, a frantically exciting live auction, thoughtful presentations by some of our Camp Sunrise & Sidekicks kids and a night of dancing to the music of the band, Uncorked. Some highlights of the evening included singing some fun camp songs and a gala-wide sing-along to Mariah Carey’s iconic song, “Hero.” After all the guests had left, the plates had been cleared and volunteers had finished their tallying, we were over the moon to learn that in our second year, the Dreams of Summer Gala raised $104,000! The funds will help us get even more kids to camp while helping to fund and support all the programs endeavors that keep our kids coming back. Many thanks to everyone who volunteered, sponsored and supported the gala in so many different ways. We’ll be back again next year with an even bigger and better event and maybe even a few new surprises! Mark your calendars for next year’s Dreams of Summer Gala which will take place on Saturday, February 27 at Phoenix Marriott Tempe at The Buttes.
