This has been a challenging year for a lot of organizations, and Camp Hermosa is no exception! We're moving our Fall Fundraiser online this year. We're excited to share two different ways you can connect with the camp community and financially support your favourite place.
Hermosa Together video event! We're hosting an old-school video telethon on Saturday, October 3 at 7:00pm. Tune into our YouTube channel that evening for a showcase of our most talented people, as well as a few special guests. It's like an end-of-the-week talent show, only bigger and better! We've got stand-up comedians, musical guests, highland dancing, and an interview with a front-line health care worker. You'll have a chance throughout the telethon to make a donation through Canada Helps.
We are also hosting an online auction from Sept 26-Oct 3! Our generous community has provided a veritable cornucopia (you know, because it's fall?) of really amazing items to auction off at a variety of price points. Get yourself a weekend away at a cottage on Manitoulin Island, a fancy-pants facial at a fancy-pants Oakville spa, a 1-year subscription to a personalized book-of-the-month club, a virtual Hollywood tour, or training sessions on how to start a small business, succeed in academia, or style your hair in all of the best retro styles. We're also auctioning off a wide variety of special camp perks and privileges for next summer, custom cakes, a 1-hour virtual juggling lesson with World Juggling Champion (and Hermosa alumnus!) Bob Cates, a sailing trip on Lake Erie, a personal shopping experience at Auburn Vintage Clothiers, items from Epicure, Tupperware, Scentsy, Doterra, Norwex, Pampered Chef, and so many others it's hard for our organizers to keep track of them all.
This year, we need each other more than ever, and we need your help more than ever! Let's join together -- in spirit, if not in person -- to ensure Camp Hermosa has a firm financial foundation for summer 2021.
