Camp Sunrise hands

The 2020 Johns Hopkins Camp Sunrise Gala will be held on July 17, 2021 at Turf Valley Resort in Ellicott City, MD. The scenic resort is home to a glorious ballroom that will ensure the evening is a memorable one.

The Gala is the largest fundraiser for Johns Hopkins’ Camp Sunrise, a week-long cost-free summer camp for children who have been diagnosed with or have survived cancer. Camp offers summertime activities, fresh air and fun.  The social interaction with other children who have been impacted by cancer allows each child an opportunity to bond over similar experiences.   At its inception Camp Sunrise enrolled 6 campers. This year, Camp will include over 140 participants; and it’s still growing!

The Camp Sunrise Gala promises a night of fun and will feature hors d'oeuvres, dinner, open bar, and silent and live auctions. Even better, attendees will have the opportunity to meet some of the brave and courageous children who have battled pediatric cancer.

Also, we are thrilled to welcome WBAL’s Jason Newton as our 2020 Gala of Light Emcee! A proud Baltimore native, Jason joined WBAL-TV 11 News in 2013 as co-anchor of WBAL-TV 11 News Today and is host of the public affairs show "11 TV Hill".  His news travels have taken him around the country covering stories of national interest, earning him an Emmy Award in 2017 and Associated Press award for "Outstanding In-Depth Reporting" in 2006.    Jason has a degree in broadcast journalism from the Philip Merrill School of Journalism at the University of Maryland-College Park.
