Not sure if you can all remember what you were doing back in 2003, but dreaming about creating a sustaining and impactful fundraiser to support the children and programs of Camp Rainbow Gold was definitely what we were doing.
Shortly before this time, during my very first Camp Rainbow Gold Board meeting, we were informed that the organization was struggling financially and in need of immediate funding. We knew we had to do something fast and go into action to fortify and sustain what Dr. Dave McClusky had founded back in 1984. Hence, the Share Your Heart Ball to benefit Camp Rainbow Gold was born out of our living room and has continued to go beyond all hopes and expectations we could have imagined.
It has created a community so committed to the hundreds of kids and families we serve that they book their calendars out a year in advance to be a part of this very special evening. They volunteer during their short summers to ensure that our campers have a memorable and safe camp experience in the breathtaking Idaho landscape. They donate throughout the year to ensure that our critical programming, services, camps and college scholarships will always be available. Together we have been able to go beyond one night, one week or one year.
If you haven’t been to the Share Your Heart Ball to benefit Camp Rainbow Gold in the heart of Sun Valley, Idaho, then you haven’t witnessed the magic that this gala brings. It’s friends, families, donors, supporters and volunteers gathering together to support Camp’s amazing history. It is high energy auctions, delicious dinner, dancing and moments that are truly unforgettable.
Be a part of this incredible evening on Saturday, February 16, 2019, for the 17th Annual Share Your Heart Ball to benefit Camp Rainbow Gold.
