Fundraiser for St. Michael’s Facility At Madge Lake
Trevor Baker is organising this fundraising appeal on behalf of Lori-Lou Dungen.
St. Michael ‘s (formerly Camp Chaban) Facility at Madge Lake situated on the shores of Benito Beach at Madge Lake, has hosted hundreds of children, families and school groups (AMPO) for decades with summer and winter camps. There have been significant improvements to the facility in the recent years with construction of a new main hall competed in 2015.
To date the Board of Directors and an amazing group of local volunteers have kept the facility financially viable through rentals and catered events at the venue itself, fundraiser dinners off site, memberships, and grants and donations etc. The current Pandemic Crisis has eliminated all possible sources of revenue and there is approximately $6000 per month in mortgage and operating costs to pay. With the anticipation that this crisis will continue for at least 3-5 months we need $18,000.00 – $30.000.00 in funds to stay afloat.
We are appealing to all individuals; Alumni who have enjoyed the camp or had their children attend camp, people of faith, parish organizations and business owners to help us in this critical time with a donation whether large or small. We pray that you can find it in your heart to support this campaign so that St. Michael’s Camp can continue for future generations to benefit children and families who will make lasting memories.
