Make the Magic 2013
To say that this year’s Make the Magic event was a success would be an understatement. This was the 3rd Annual Make the Magic for CKUW! First of all we would like to send out a HUGE thank you to everyone to attended the event, we had a sold out show! And another HUGE thank you to our amazing donors, this event would not have been possible without you!
The night started out with bidding on silent auction items and a fabulous performance by Redefined, an A Cappella group on campus!
After the performances we were welcomed to the event by one of the Magic the Magic coordinators, Peaches, then it was time for dinner. We had a great time socializing with old friends and with new people who had never experienced the magic before. After dinner, it was presentation time. To start us off Nemo, the other Make the Magic coordinator told her Kesem story. After that Sunshine spoke about both the National Camp Kesem and Wisconsin chapter Impact. In addition we had two camper parents, one teen camper, and three youth campers speak. The last speaker was Pocket, our CEO of Camp Kesem, she did an amazing job sharing her story and closing out the night. Some of their speeches made us laugh, all made us cry, but most importantly they all showed us the true magic of Camp Kesem.
After the program was complete there were last minute battles for the silent auction items and then the night was over.
From the event and the days that followed we have been completely blown away but the amount of money that this event raised. The final count for the event was…drum roll please…$19,470!!!! This is enough money to send 41 of our campers to camp this summer! Once again thank you, thank you, thank you for everyone who helped make such a success! The last HUGE thank you goes out to Nemo and Peaches, thank you for planning and hosting the best Make the Magic yet!
