Friday, November 16, Camp Happy Days will host the Heroes of Hope Gala, the 29th Anniversary of the Cabooty Party, presented by APECS Aerospace in Association with Heritage Pools. The Heroes of Hope Gala will be held at the Memminger Auditorium in Downtown Charleston from 7pm-11pm and will feature live entertainment, heavy hors d’oeuvres, an open bar and a live and silent auction.
Founded in 1982, Camp Happy Days’ mission is to offer support and encouragement to children diagnosed with cancer and their families. The funds raised during this event allow Camp Happy Days to provide cost free year-round programs, special events and access to crisis resources to children with cancer.
Allan “Cabooty” Cabading, a survivor of childhood cancer and one of Camp Happy Days’ first counselors, started the Gala in his own apartment as a tree-trimming party. It has now grown into a major fundraiser that is proudly hosted by the organization and Allan Cabading himself.
