'Cabooty Holiday Party' benefits Camp Happy Days | Events
DOWNTOWN (WCSC) - The Camp Happy Days’ 22nd Annual Holiday Party benefitting its year round programs for South Carolina’s children fighting cancer will be held Friday, December 2, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Guests at Memminger Auditorium will be wined and dined while dancing to Charleston’s greatest party band, Plane Jane, and bidding on numerous silent and live auction items.
The annual “Cabooty Christmas Party” is one of Camp Happy Days biggest fundraisers each year.
The party is organized by Allan “Cabooty” Cabading, a survivor of childhood cancer and one of Camp Happy Days very first counselors. Thanks to Allan, what started as a tree trimming party 22 years ago in Allan’s apartment collecting canned goods for the homeless, has grown into a major fundraiser for Camp Happy Days.
Tickets are $50 per person and include heavy hor d’oeuvres and a full bar. Attendees will be able to make last minute 2011 tax-deductible donations while walking away with auction prizes like two round-trip tickets to a one-week stay in a front beach condo at San Diego’s Mission Beach, a hunting trip, a deep-sea fishing trip and 12 months worth of fancy dinners around Charleston.
