Hi Beber Camp! It’s Elli Krandel, Associate, Sustainability and Engagement!

As the summer began, and the focus of the year-round office shifted from preparing for campers and staff to welcoming them back to Mukwonago, my shift moved from year-round engagement to the Annual Online Auction for Scholarship. Last year’s auction raised $30,000, a significant portion of the $200,000 allocated to scholarship! All of the money raised help ensure that no camper was turned away due to financial need.

Thank you to everyone who has participated so far. This year’s Auction has already raised over $12,000 for Scholarship! We are on track to meet our goal of $35,000 for Scholarship, and there are many incredible items still available!

The Auction is an exciting fundraiser because it engages our Beber family in a very unique way, while offering wonderful opportunities for folks outside of the Beber community to get involved and help support the Scholarship Fund.

For Beber families, we have in-camp experiences that campers love! These range from a trip to Elegant Farmer and a trip to Laubers, to a BBQ on the Island with Joel and breakfast with Becky and Brad. The campers love an opportunity to hang out with special guests from around camp!

Beyond in-camp items, the Auction has an incredible array of items for folks across the country. Some highlights include VIP tickets to ANY Wilco Show on the upcoming tour, a week-long vacation at a beautiful home in Park City, Utah, and an autographed Chris Bosh Miami Heat jersey.

If you haven’t had a chance to participate yet, there is still plenty of time.
