The value of Generosity has been at the heart of Scentsy from the very beginning. We’ve held annual summertime fundraisers since 2009. From a Spending Spree for Refugees to a Teeter-Totter-a-Thon, these events all share a common thread: to help the community in a way that’s fun and authentically Scentsy.
That’s how the idea for a Rock-a-Thon started nine years ago. It was such a massive success that it has since become an annual tradition. Events like this are meant to light a spark in the community to rally together to support a local cause and inspire us all to contribute more than we take.
Food trucks, fireworks, and a sidewalk lined with rocking chairs — the Scentsy Rock-a-Thon is a sight to behold. Every September, Scentsy employees and community members take a stand by taking a seat during this chair-based charity event.
The more chairs that are rocking at once, the more funds are raised for a local charity.
On Friday, September 9, we will line our property on Eagle Road with 70 rocking chairs. We’ll be rocking for 12 hours straight to raise money for Camp Rainbow Gold, with all funds going to help build Idaho’s first medical camp — Hidden Paradise!
For every hour a chair is rocked, Scentsy will donate $250 per chair. That’s up to $210,000! We also challenge the community to donate additional funds to Camp Rainbow Gold to meet our $250,000 goal!
As an added perk, rockers and spectators alike enjoy the best eats in the Treasure Valley and support local small business owners! There will be almost 20 food trucks onsite! And all the trucks are donating a portion of the day’s sales to Camp Rainbow Gold.
We Shine for Camp Rainbow Gold
At Scentsy, we’re a family, and we believe it’s important to use our resources to help support other families in our community. Camp Rainbow Gold inspires us, and we support its mission to provide emotionally empowering experiences to Idaho children diagnosed with cancer and their families.
We couldn’t be more excited that there will be a place like Hidden Paradise for all Idaho children to go and have their abilities celebrated. We’re honored to be a small piece of making that dream a reality.
Contribute More Than You Take
The Rock-a-Thon is a simple concept with a heartwarming mission and a compelling call to action. It rallies the local community together, and there is something for everyone. You can give your time, your money, or both.
