The Silver Sage Region sponsored charity for 2022 is Camp Rainbow Gold!
At our June meeting we heard from three outstanding member nominated charities servicing the Silver Sage Region and our board selected Camp Rainbow Gold (CRG) as the 2022 sponsored charity. The mission of CRG is: To provide emotionally empowering experiences to Idaho’s children diagnosed with cancer and their families. Many members will know of CRG and may already be a supporter, however, we hope to have broad support from the Silver Sage Region during this campaign considering that:
- Their cause and type of charity has not been supported by the club since 2013 when a camp for children with diabetes was the sponsored charity
- Their service area covers almost the entire Silver Sage Region and extends significantly from our Boise area core to Twin Falls, Sun Valley, and beyond
- Their impact to persons with childhood cancer and their families is unique and delivers lasting positive experiences during an extremely tough time
CRG is a relatively large charity for a Silver Sage selection and they currently have a capital fundraising campaign to build out a specialized camp in Fairfield to meet the medical needs of children. Our contributions will go directly towards funding ongoing camp operations for campers and their families including child and teen oncology camp, sibling camp, and family camp. These camping programs are the main focus of CRG and are mostly funded through contributions from local businesses, individuals, and Idaho-based corporations. You can find out more about CRG at https://camprainbowgold.org/.
Please watch for further emails for opportunities to get involved, attend an event, and meet CRG representatives. Our capstone event will be a benefiting charity dinner and auction on Friday November 4th at the Riverside Hotel in Boise. Mark your calendars now, and if you would like to stay overnight, mention the Silver Sage Porsche Club when you call the hotel for a $139 special rate for 2 persons including breakfast.
