Holly Alm Camp Scholarship Fund

by Diane Brown

The 7th annual Holly Alm Camp Scholarship Fund Celebration on October 8, 2017 was a huge success! More than $31,000 was raised for the fund! The rain held off nicely until 94 golfers finished playing at Edgewood Country Club (ECC). Meanwhile inside, 156 dinner guests enjoyed perusing the Basket Auction, High End Auction, and Silent Auction. The “camping” theme d├ęcor and the personal testimony from Rebecca Malek helped generate an excitement to send more kids to church retreats, camps, clubs, and elsewhere.

New this year was our “Send a Kid to Camp” campaign.  While all of the money raised goes into the same fund, donors felt a real connection to a camper by putting money or pledges into the tent for this collection. The overwhelming response was $6195! Our thanks goes out to ECC for delicious hors d’oeuvres, dinner, and assistance in making this such an enjoyable event. We are also grateful to the many volunteers who gave numerous hours of work, to the donors of the great prizes we were able to auction off, and to our Lord and Savior for blessing this Celebration.
