Many, many thanks to all those who joined us at the 6th Annual Shader Kids event on May 28th and 29th! Amazingly, the weather held and it was another memorable weekend full of laughs, catching up with friends, and yet another win by the East in the Tim Ross Memorial Ball Hockey Tournament. Though many were bleary-eyed on Sunday morning, one of the highlights of the weekend was another meaningful gathering at Tim’s Tree to reflect on his legacy.
Thanks to all of your generous support, we raised approximately $15,000. These funds will continue to support our current sponsorships of deserving campers and camp staff, and will help make it possible to expand our efforts in the coming years.
Many thanks to both Cowpuncher and Dojo Workhorse for providing the live music on Saturday night (although they were unable to drown out the incredibly loud music from the rave at the adjacent public campground!) And, of course, we are very grateful to YMCA Camp Chief Hector for providing such a wonderful facility and helping to make the weekend so successful.
However, it is really all of you who participated that help to keep Tim’s spirit alive. We appreciate your ongoing support and can’t wait to see you at Kilcoo next year for the 7th Annual Shader Kids Event on May 11- 13th, 2012.
Again, our sincere thanks. Have a wonderful summer!
