The 9th Annual Boots and Bandanas Benefit Dinner and Auction benefiting Camp Summit will be held again this year at Eddie Deen’s Ranch in downtown Dallas on Thursday, Nov. 4, at 6:00 p.m.
The western themed night begins with dinner catered by Eddie Deen’s and includes a volunteer awards ceremony honoring Trinity Bible Church, and both a live and silent auction. This year’s emcee will be KERA radio news reporter, BJ Austin.
Last year’s record event provided financial assistance to over 750 summer campers in 2010. This year, with the needs continuing to increase, the organization’s goal is to raise over $120,000.
The benefit dinner is Camp Summit’s largest fundraiser, with proceeds going toward thousands of children and adults with developmental, physical, or sensory impaired disabilities that come to Camp Summit in search of a traditional camping experience.
Camp Summit is a residential camp for children and adults with special needs located on Copper Canyon Road just east of Lantana and is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization and United Way service provider. Campers range in age from six through adulthood and may be developmentally delayed, physically challenged, deaf and blind or have multiple disabilities.
