EIGHTH ANNUAL B’NAI B’RITH CAMP SPAGHETTI DINNER
The eighth annual B’nai B’rith Camp Spaghetti Dinner will be held on Thursday, May 17th with tours of camp starting at 5pm and dinner at 6pm. Tickets are $10 each and may be purchased online at bbcamp.org/spaghetti-dinner, at the Family Promise Day Center in Taft or at the door. The dinner raises scholarship money for our local kids to go to Day Camp.
The meal is preceded by tours of the camp to see where kids take part in activities at the beautiful setting of the camp itself. It is a chance for people to see the changes happening at camp or their first view of the lake from the camp dining hall deck.
There will be several baskets to be raffled including tickets to Siletz Bay Music Festival, gift certificates, a basket of gourmet goodies, wine and many other surprise items. All proceeds support scholarships for local kids to be able to attend Day Camp.
“We have been lucky enough to have had sunshine for the past years so people can really get out to see the camp, “ stated Sue Anderson, co-chair of the event with her husband, Dick Anderson. “But if it is raining, the large deck is covered and we can still see what a great place BB Camp is for our community.”
Kids attending the Day Camp get to experience real, camp life and create memories for a lifetime. Not all our kids are fortunate enough to be able to go to camp. Some kids have very little adult supervision during the summer months. This is a chance for them to go to camp by means of financial aid and take home memories of fun experiences such as nature hiking, swimming in the pool, water sports in the lake such as canoeing, paddle boarding and tubing, arts and crafts, sports and much more. Kids are also given books to take home on a weekly basis to add to or start their own book collection.
