Events are a fun way to build community, celebrate our accomplishments, and raise much-needed funds for our programs. As you know, we don't turn away any family for an inability to pay, so we rely on the gifts and generocity of people like you to help us make it happen.

Benefit Concert

Come out to our Benefit Concert for an evening of fun! Typically 3 to 4 acts will play, interrupted only by testimonies from past and current campers. This is a great event for meeting people, having a super night out, and helping us raise money for Summer Camperships.

Shadow Banquet

Our Shadow Banquet celebrates the year of Shadow Company! We celebrate and acknowledge the work that Shadow Company has done throughout the year from FringeArts Festival performances to the camping trip. We also celebrate the seniors in Shadow as we send them off to their next phase of life. During the Shadow Banquet, we recognize a Shadow Alumnus of the Year and a Shadow Volunteer of the Year!

Auction for Collaborative Arts & Holiday Party

Our annual Auction + Holiday Party is a great way to end your calendar year. We have unique and amazing gifts available for bidding as well as amazing food, a live auction, and performances by the different programs we offer. Come socialize and have a blast as we raise money for our end of the year campaign.
