What Makes a Good Host?
Great Food, Plenty of Booze, Perfect Music, and Fun People.
By our calculations, in its 31 previous years, over 3,500 separate individuals and businesses have stepped up to say, “welcome to my party” on Labor Day weekend for Sundance. What a great bunch of hosts you’ve been.
Because Sundance is YOUR party. As the largest fundraiser in support of the work of CAMP Rehoboth, the weekend has something for everyone: Food! Drink! Chatter! Shopping! Dancing! A reunion of sorts for people you might only see on this one occasion. Quality time with the people you might see every day. Fun with our family of choice: spouses, partners, friends, colleagues, neighbors, and anyone who is part of the community. All are welcome. All are welcomed. And all are accepted.
Sponsorship of Sundance makes it happen. By securing the commitments of hosts, supporters, and sponsors in advance, we underwrite the entire event and guarantee that our net amount grows to support the programs, advocacy, and outreach of CAMP Rehoboth all year long.
We work hard getting sponsorship in place for this event, so what are you waiting for? Our phone call? Fill out the sponsorship form on page 27 right now or go online and sign up at the highest level you can manage. We promise to put your donation to good use. Even if your plans this year don’t include Rehoboth Beach on Labor Day weekend, we hope that you will show your support. You can always donate your tickets back for someone in the community who might not otherwise be able to come!
Which is your favorite evening to play host?
Some people prefer the auction (Saturday, August 31, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.—please note: starting and ending an hour earlier this year!). With plenty of food, tons of tempting items to bid on both in the silent auction and with auctioneer Lorne Crawford, open bar, grooving music by DJ Stephen Strasser, we promise a bit more room this year to move around and make your bidding easier. Eat, drink, and shop. Make everyone feel welcome. All for a good cause.
Or maybe the dance is your favorite part? On Sunday night, September 1, Sundance 2019—Rainbow XXXII: Ultraviolet Disco Day-Glo Sunrise promises to be spectacular. The dance will encore the enormously popular two-for-one format starting at 7 p.m. with the Sundance Disco Twilight Tea featuring DJ legend Robbie Leslie, and continuing seamlessly into the high-energy Sundance with music by DJ/Remixer Joe Gauthreaux. Lights all night by Paul Turner. The bar will be open throughout. Dress up! Dress down! Come early, stay late. It’s your party!
Some of you have been hosts, supporters, or sponsors more than once. Or more than 10 times. Even more than 30 years! We thank you so much. You understand that this is your party, your community, and you are standing up to be counted as a supporter of CAMP Rehoboth. Now more than ever, during this time of transition, we need all hands on deck. Help us welcome whomever will come into new leadership for the organization by showing us growing with pride.
