Holiday Gala to benefit Camp Happy Days

26th Anniversary of the Cabooty Party

Charleston, SC – On Friday, November 13 at 7:00pm, Camp Happy Days will host their 26th Anniversary of the Cabooty Party Holiday Gala presented by APECS to benefit Camp Happy Days. The Cabooty Holiday Party will be held at Memminger Auditorium at 56 Beaufain Street in Downtown Charleston.  This annual event benefits Camp Happy Days and their year-round programs for South Carolina’s children fighting cancer. “Last year’s event was a huge success. We raised over $100,000 for Camp Happy Days and that doubled our total from the year before. The generosity of our event-goers each year is amazing and with their continued support we can provide year-round programs assisting these children during all stages of their disease from diagnosis to remission and during all aspects of treatment and follow-up,” says Cindy Hay Johnson, Executive Director of Camp Happy Days. Attendees will enjoy live music from Super Deluxe, heavy hor d’oeuvres, a full bar and a live and silent auction. The auction will include items such as travel packages, couples date night for a year, hunting and golfing packages, sports memorabilia, spa-days, shopping sprees and much more.

The Holiday Gala is in its 26th year and was started by Allan ”Cabooty” Cabading, a survivor of childhood cancer and one of Camp Happy Days very first counselors. The party started 26 years ago in Allan’s apartment as a tree-trimming party and over the years has grown into a major fundraiser for Camp Happy Days. “Camp Happy Days is very thankful for Allan and his dedication to helping fight childhood cancer. None of this would be possible without Allan and all our donations,” says Madelene Lewis, Gala Co-chair and Board member of Camp Happy Days.

Tickets are $100 per person and include heavy hors d’oeuvres and a full bar. Dress is cocktail attire.  The title sponsor for the Gala is APECS Asia-Pacific Engineering Consulting Services.  Other sponsors include Adams Outdoor Advertising, Intrigue Design and Events, Little Dog Agency, Anchor Sign, Graze, Kickin Chicken and Swig & Swine.
