From the Executive Director... People, both volunteers and donors, are the backbone of Happy Hollow Children’s Camp. I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you, both volunteers and donors, who have very generously supported Happy Hollow Camp over the past year. By supporting Happy Hollow Camp, you have helped change the lives of children in need for the betterment of our communities. Every hour and every dollar you have given has made an impact on the lives of local children that attend Happy Hollow. Camp has started 2014 with the success of the annual gala. On February 22, our Annual “Under the Stars Gala”, chaired by Amanda Ryan, was a great success with an income of just over $110,000 for camper scholarships! Thank you to the event sponsors, donors, and event attendees for supporting the gala. Mark your calendars for the 2015 Gala on February 28, 2015 and plan on attending. I would like to welcome new Happy Hollow Board Members- Andy Brown of Gregory and Appel Insurance, Tim Crowell of Pure Waters, LLC, Katina Krambeck of Eli Lilly and Co., Gary Lowe of Allstate Insurance and Ryan Tarpey of Interactive Intelligence. In mid-March, the Interactive Intelligence Foundation approved funding for camperships, a bully prevention course for our campers this summer, and the construction of a new addition to the high ropes course for the younger children to use at camp. With this support, we can now continue to offer this program to thousands of more children in the years to come. Lastly, our 2014 summer camp enrollment is on track with spring projections, thanks to Chris Chappell, our Program and Recruitment Director, who has actively been recruiting campers through new contacts and collaborations with new youth serving organizations. We are expecting record enrollments this summer and as most of you are aware, 95% of the campers that attend Happy Hollow Children’s Camp are on a scholarship. Therefore, it is of extreme importance that we fund the needs of these children. We are extremely grateful if you chose Happy Hollow to support from among all the important organizations with which you are familiar. Thank you for reaching out to children you will likely never meet. Your support will go a long way to ensure these children have a brighter future. Yours in Camping,

Bernard Schrader, Executive Director Happy Hollow Children’s Camp, Inc.

23rd Annual Under the Stars Gala and Auction

Gala guests explore silent auction packages. Thank you to the in-kind auction item sponsors. Indiana Raptor Center entertains guests with a raptor from their program that visits camp weekly to educate the campers.

On February 22, 2014 over 260 distinguished guests celebrated Happy Hollow Children’s Camp at the Marriott North Indianapolis. The Under the Stars Gala raised over $110,000 for economically disadvantaged children in Central Indiana. The guests of the gala enjoyed a cocktail reception as they perused over a 100 silent auction items. After an elegant dinner, the guests engaged in an exciting live auction. Funds from the gala benefit children that are economically disadvantaged or have mild to severe asthma in Central Indiana with scholarships to attend a week of summer camp in Nashville, Indiana. Thank you to our sponsors and guests for making the gala a wonderful event. Mark your calendars for the 2015 Under The Stars Gala on Saturday, February 28, 2015!

Thank you to our Under the Stars sponsors
