Campfires & Cocktails – August 25, 2017 in Littleton

SAVE THE DATE: Friday, August 25, 2017 at The Falls Event Center, Littleton for the 4th Annual Campfires & Cocktails event ‘to send s’more kids to camp’!  Plans are underway.  If you are interested in helping out or would like info about sponsorship opportunities, please contact us at wapiyapi@wapiyapi.org.

Last year’s event on September 23, 2016 raised nearly $50,000, thanks to over 200 friends of Wapiyapi.  Presented by Bagi Mechanical, the 3rd annual fundraiser featured a sit down dinner, live music, and both silent and live auctions. Parent Erin Anderson shared her family’s experience saying Camp Wapiyapi is truly “good medicine.” Guests enjoyed an impromptu performance of a camp song (with choreography!) by campers and staff.

A special tribute was given to long-time board member and camp physician Dr. Jeff Druck as the 2016 recipient of the Chase Faculty Community Service Award. This distinguished recognition by the University of Colorado and made possible through funding by the Chase Corporation translated into a $10,000 donation in support of Wapiyapi.

Wapiyapi is grateful to its event sponsors who generously helped underwrite this important fundraiser. Special thanks to Channel 7’s Theresa Marchetta as our gracious emcee, the evening’s musicians Jim Corson and Mary Christ, all of the merchants who donated to the auctions, and every guest who attended or donated.

Campfires & Cocktails is a fundraiser for Wapiyapi, a Colorado 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that serves families facing childhood cancer with a special kind of healing outside of the hospital. Our free summer camps provide a respite from the daily challenges of childhood cancer and an additional circle from which families may draw the strength for continued healing. All proceeds from the event will help send lots s’more patients and their siblings to camp!
