Red Carpet Recap Print

2016galrecap1Guests at the Red Carpet Gala entered Celebration Hall at the Jacobs Center on a red carpet. They were greeted with a glass of champagne as they prepared to view the 88th Academy Awards® broadcast on Sunday, February 28, 2016.
The Academy Awards telecast, courtesy of KGTV Channel 10, the San Diego affiliate of the ABC Television network, was viewed on three large screens. Matt Mendes, a reporter for Chanel 10, shared hosting duties with the CCC’s president, Dave Kempton.

Kitchen for Good provided a delicious sit down dinner. Attendees predicted the winners, bid on Silent Auction items, participated in a trivia contest and Opportunity Drawing for the money hat added to the evening’s excitement.

Sophie Magallanez, held the winning ticket for the $200 hat which was donated by Duffy Kruspodin and created by Sue Beagle. Traci DeMarco predicted the most winners scoring 16 out of 20 to win the “Predict the Winner” contest. The photos taken by Launey LeSage, Portraits from the Heart photographer, were a great hit again as Launey brought props for guests to use to glam up their memories of the evening.

This year’s event raised enough money to send 40 San Diego children to camp this summer.

Because of Camp... Print

I developed lasting friendships...
I learned self-esteem...
I became a team player...
I learned how to care...
I became a counselor..We Went to Camp. Shouldn't You?

Camp provides children with the opportunity to connect with nature, to participate in human powered activities, and to benefit from personal and primary relationships. Because of Camp...™ so much is possible. How the camp experience has changed lives is one of the most powerful key messages we can share as camp professionals. The benefits of camp extend further than just childhood development. Camp, and the experiences of camp, defines us even as adults. Camp has changed many lives, introduced people to new passions, and broadened horizons.

After much time and effort, ACA has developed a public service announcement (PSA) titled Because of Camp...™ . The purpose of this Web-based PSA is to familiarize parents of camp aged children with the benefits of camp.

Because of camp...Because of Camp...™ consists of two similar videos containing fourteen celebrities discussing how their lives have been changed... Because of Camp...™ . The videos are about a minute in length and includes appearances by Emma Roberts, Hill Harper, Lisa Loeb, Kerri Strug, Michael DeLorenzo, Justin Chambers, Paul Adelstein, James Pickens, Blair Underwood, Sharon Lawrence, Frank Sesno, Glynn Turman, Ashlan Gorse, Lisa Raye, and others. Click on the photo or visit http://www.acacamps.org/becauseofcamp/ to view these PSA videos.

Please feel free to contact the national office of the American Camp Association with any questions, concerns,or suggestions regarding Because of Camp...™.

Sincerely,
