It’s an evening you just won’t want to miss!

Get ready for the 38th annual Camp Fire An Artists’ Christmas – an evening where artists, art lovers and Camp Fire supporters come together to help build a community where every child has equitable access to the quality learning opportunities they need to succeed and thrive in a rapidly changing world.

Star guests and sponsors at the Gold Level and above are invited to attend the VIP reception, starting at 6:00 p.m. where you will enjoy cocktails, a first look at the silent art auction and the art awards presentation.

All guests will enjoy a cocktail reception and silent art auction starting at 7:00 p.m., with live music by Trey and the Tritones. During dinner, you will enjoy a comedy performance by the award-winning Four Day Weekend. You’ll then have an opportunity to bid on luxury items and amazing trips (including Dove Hunting in Argentina, 5 Nights in Los Cabos, and more).

There is also a Party Wagon raffle, where you could walk away with a high-end wagon stocked with everything you need to have the best-stocked bar around! After the program, you can dance the night away with Trey & The Tritones.
