Camp Blodgett's Babies' Welfare Guild is hosting a fundraiser between April 6 and May 6 - an Un-Gala to support Camp Blodgett’s educational and recreational programs for youth in West Michigan.
Due to the closure of event spaces and the need to minimize communal gatherings, this fundraising event will replace Camp Blodgett's Babies' Welfare Guild's annual Giving In Style event this year. You can learn more about the Giving In Style event by watching this video highlighting a past event and its impact on the kids of Camp Blodgett.
The Guild has provided us with a challenge grant thanks to the generosity of a member of the Guild. Funds raised through the Un-Gala will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $15,000! (Note the additional match funds that were recently added, thanks to the Babies' Welfare Guild!)
The families Camp Blodgett serves were already struggling to meet their needs when this reality arrived. With school buildings closed for the remainder of the school year, our kids are missing so much and their families are experiencing incredible stress. During this time, we know one thing: our families will need us more than ever before. We need your support!
When you purchase one or more "tickets" to the Un-Gala, you will be entered into a drawing to win one of our amazing Style Show auction items! Examples of items available in the drawing are listed below, with a link to each donation category. Select a ticket price to learn more about the incredible items that you might win!
Donations may also be made via check. If you would like to designate your gift to the Babies' Welfare Guild, mail to P.O. Box 6645 Grand Rapids, MI 49516. Donations via check for Camp Blodgett can be mailed to Camp Blodgett at 528 Bridge St NW, Suite 6, Grand Rapids, MI 49504. Questions about donations can be directed to Camp Blodgett at 616-949-0780 x102 or to Mary, Treasurer of the Guild at 616-822-5001.
