A Sneak Peak at Laughter in the Woods

Camp Anokijig's Laughter in the Woods charity dinner and silent auction is just around the corner (Saturday night at Western Lodge). I wanted to give you, the Anokijig Faithful, a sneak-preview of some of the incredible items we'll have available at this event, which will benefit our campership fund for underpriviledged kids.

Many of you know Gordon Clapp for his Emmy-winning role as Det. Greg Medavoy on the hit TV show, NYPD Blue, but Gordon is also an accomplished stage actor, who was nominated for a Tony, for his role as Dave Moss in the 2005 Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross. Last year's autographed NYPD Blue script was such a popular item at our auction, we asked Gordon if he had any more he could send us. Gordon not only sent us another script autographed by the entire cast, he sent us an autographed cast photo as well! Thanks Gordon!

We also have autographed Milwaukee Brewer merchandise, including Greg Jennings, J.J. Hardy, Prince Fielder, Ryan Braun and Bill Hall.

For the outdoorsmen, we have several fishing baskets, a Minn Kota trolling motor, co-pilot wireless depth finder, fish finder and many other great items.
Golfers will be interested in a round of golf for two with a cart at The Bull, four rounds of golf with a cart at Quit Qui Oc, private lessons with the head golf pro at Whistling Straits or a framed and matted photo of Tiger Woods (we still can't get our hands on any more Chris Regis-autographed photos).

This auction isn't just for men who fish, play golf or watch sports. We also have a Tastefully Simple gift basket, a gift certificate to the Otter Creek Wreath Factory and McGinley & Baker of Elkhart Lake have donated an arrangement of flowers per month for an entire year!

We also have a Starbucks gift basket, a wide assortment of gift certificates to area restaurants, unique Anokijig items and several autographed items from Donald Driver, Jerry Kramer and Brett Favre, including a autographed and framed Favre jersey (we couldn't start off with Brett, now that he plays for the Jets).

This event wouldn't be the success that it is without all of our wonderful donors, guests and sponsors and we thank you all for your support of Camp Anokijig. There are just a few spots left for this wonderful event and we hope you can join us. Please call 920-893-0782 to make your reservation today!
