Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice hosts Camp New Dawn fundraiser

Record Observer - - News -

GRA­SONVILLE — Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice will take over the pa­tio of Fish­er­man’s Crab Deck in Gra­sonville from 5 to 8 p.m. Thurs­day, June 30, to host a fundraiser for Camp New Dawn. Ev­ery­one is wel­come, and ad­mis­sion is free.

The cen­ter­piece of this fundraiser is a silent auc­tion. Items that will be avail­able for bid­ding in­clude gift cer­tifi­cates to lo­cal restau­rants, jew­elry, beauty prod­ucts, beach-themed good­ies and a bas­ket of lot­tery tick­ets.

Guests will have a chance to win a pot of cash by pur­chas­ing 50/50 raf­fle tick­ets. Food is avail­able for pur­chase in the restau­rant.

Camp New Dawn is a re­treat for chil­dren, teens and fam­i­lies griev­ing af­ter the death of a loved one. Un­der the guid­ance of pro­fes­sional grief sup­port staff and spe­cially trained vol­un­teers, campers learn about and ex­press grief in a safe and nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment.

Camp New Dawn will run Satur­day, Aug. 13, through Mon­day, Aug. 15, this year. A day camp for chil­dren ages 4 to 6 is held Aug. 15, and the Camp New Dawn fam­ily re­treat be­gins on Aug. 14. Fam­ily camp ends on Tues­day, Aug. 16.

The cost of Camp New Dawn is $30 for each child or teen and $75 for each fam­ily.

“No one is turned away due to in­abil­ity to pay, which is why the Camp New Dawn fundraiser is so im­por­tant to en­sur­ing the suc­cess of this pro­gram, now in its 22nd year,” said Rhonda Knotts, di­rec­tor of Camp New Dawn. “Sup­port from the com­mu­nity has been phe­nom­e­nal year af­ter year and we look for­ward to a big turnout at Fish­er­man’s Crab Deck on June 30.”
