Camp Sunrise Gala

Save the Date - May 12, 2018

Gala 2018

The 2018 Johns Hopkins Camp Sunrise Gala will be held on May 12, 2018 at McDonogh School's Edward St. John Student Center. Our multi-story venue is home to a glorious ballroom that will ensure the evening is memorable and significant.

The Gala is the largest fundraiser for Johns Hopkins Camp Sunrise, a week-long summer camp for children who have been diagnosed with or have survived cancer. Camp offers a respite with fresh air and fun with the other campers.  The social interaction and closeness with other children impacted by cancer allows them to form relationships and a sense of comradery.   At its inception Camp Sunrise enrolled just 6 campers, this year Camp will include over 120 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.
