Saturday, August 28, 2021 The 13th annual Starry Night CAMP Gala will be virtual in 2021 to allow even more people who love CAMP the opportunity to celebrate together but remain socially distanced depending on their comfort level. This year, CAMP is proud to honor Methodist Healthcare Ministries for their work in our community and at CAMP. Don’t miss out. 1. Hear me. See me. Know me. is the theme for 2021! We will showcase stories of inspiration from our Campers, families, volunteers, and healthcare professionals. Chris Nikic, the first person with Down syndrome to complete an Iron Man, will start the evening off. Then, we will hear a series of impactful stories that will make all of us stop to hear, see, and really know who someone is. 2. No Ticket Fees! Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, the event will not have a ticket fee! 3. Raffle Tickets are Back! Only 500 tickets are available for $100 each and can be purchased now until they are sold out (or August 29). Three winners will be drawn: 1st Place $5,000 in Visa gift card, 2nd Place $2,500 in Visa gift card, and 3rd Place is a diamond pendent worth $2,500. 4. Get ready to Bid! The Auction will open Friday, August 20 (a week before the Gala). You can continue to bid against your family and friends until the auction closes at 9:00 pm on August 28th, the evening of the Gala.
