summer campers artful fundraiser
I decided to address an idea to my campers the first week of summer camp in the art shack and talk about how we could appreciate our summer this year. How could we help with the rebuilding of our community even during summer into the fall of 2013? We began brainstorming a fundraiser called: Field of Artful Games. An outdoor event to take space on the sports field creating a carnival type theme for children, friends and family to play games, enjoy delicious baked goods, lemonade and hand crafted items for sale. It was a success indeed! We helped raise just over a thousand dollars! We had two Artful Games events, one in July and August. The events were for one hour in duration, .50 cent a ticket and each game, baked good, craft to lemonade cost various ticket prices. It truly was amazing raising that much money in one hour of each event for July and August! It truly showed the out reach of community support for the Field of Artful Games Fundraiser and the campers creative talents to share and shine forth!
Below are just a view of the artful games created by the campers and pictures shared on the day of the events.
