Anokijig's 2010 Tube-A-Thon is Coming!
In honor of our camp motto, “WE SERVE”, we are inviting you to spend a fun-filled weekend at Anokijig, to kick off our annual fundraiser for the ANOKIJIG CAMPERSHIP FUND on January 8-10, 2010. The goal is to raise $20,000 to help send less fortunate children to camp, while having outrageous fun. To accomplish this, we need you to gather pledges of money from family, friends, neighbors, or anyone willing. All donations from this program go directly toward sending less fortunate children to a week of summer camp in 2010. Last year, this program helped send over 200 children to a week of summer camp.
This is one of our largest goals ever so we are counting on all of our Anokijig friends and supporters to take this chance to spread the word to as many people as possible about the Campership Fund drive and all the good that Camp does for kids. This is a chance to make a difference in a child’s life and have loads of fun doing it.
Funds raised for Tube-A-Thon may be turned in the weekend of the event or after, but only pledges that are in by 11:00 AM, January 10, 2010 will be counted toward the great prize competition. In the past, we've had some difficulty collecting the donations that were promised. Please make every effort to collect all donations and send them to Camp Anokijig by Jan 30, 2010. Remember Prizes will only be available to those whom have turned in their pledges and this money is for a very good cause. If it doesn't arrive at Camp, fewer kids can be helped.
2009 participants who have not returned their 2009 pledges may not participate.
In the past, several people have chosen to use this event solely as a reunion, without making any effort to help less fortunate campers. Although we always enjoy seeing and visiting with all of our Anokijig friends, this event is for the benefit of kids. It is not fair to those who are making the effort to raise pledges for deserving children, to allow those to attend, who have made little or no effort at all. Therefore, only participants with a minimum of $150 in pledges are allowed to participate in 2010. Please help to make this a positive event by only attending if you are collecting the minimum amount of pledges.
If you are able to join us, please fill out this form and submit it PRIOR TO January 4, 2010- http://www.anokijig.com/2010%20tube-a-thon.htm If you are unable to attend, you may still help by raising pledges or sending a donation. We hope you are able to join us and look forward to seeing you in 2010!
