Lucy has been raising money for the Ten Oaks Project and its programs since 2006 through our Annual Bowl-A-Thon. Though her 6 year-old daughter, Emerson, was too young to even attend camp, she and Lucy both bowled with their characteristic enthusiasm. During that first event, Emerson began getting steeped in camp culture, and was incredibly keen to go to Camp Ten Oaks by the time she was finally old enough. When that long awaited day arrived, Emerson just about burst with excitement as she boarded the bus. Camp did not disappoint that year, and never has since. The friendships she makes there are unique and strong, and such a valuable part of her life.
Lucy’s annual fundraising letter to everyone on an ever-expanding contact list allows her to open a door for people to ask questions and receive information about an amazing camp, and an entire community that may have been a mystery to them. Many of those contacts have become annual donors, and Lucy’s efforts have proudly put her amongst the Ten Oaks Project’s top fundraisers year after year.
