On Friday, November 22nd, Camp Happy Days will host "Thirty Dancing, The Time of My Life" gala, celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Cabooty Party. The gala will be held at the Memminger Auditorium from 7pm to 11 pm and will feature live entertainment, heavy hors d'oeuvres, an open bar, and live and silent auctions.
Founded in 1982, Camp Happy Days' mission is to offer support and encouragement to children diagnosed with cancer and their families. The funds raised during this event allow Camp Happy Days to provide cost-free, year-round programs, special events and access to crisis resources to children with cancer.
Allan "Cabooty" Cabading, a survivor of childhood cancer and one of Camp Happy Days’ first counselors, started this event in his own apartment as a tree-trimming party. It has now grown into a major fundraiser that is hosted by the organization and Cabading himself.
General admission tickets for the "Thirty Dancing, The Time of My Life" gala are $150 per person, and can be purchased online here. Sponsorships are still available for the gala; if you're interested in sponsoring the event, contact Jeanine Gillette at Jeanine@camphappydays.com.
