About Our Event

To keep our families and friends healthy, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person portion of our Annual Gala, our biggest fundraiser of the year. Even though the in-person event is canceled, the show will go on!  We are thrilled to welcome you to our virtual gala, “Gather ‘Round the Virtual Campfire” ! This unique celebration of camp will take place from the comfort of your own home. Since our event is 100% virtual this year, anyone anywhere can participate!

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Bid on your favorite items during our Silent Auction taking place September 24-27th 
  • Online bidding will conclude on Sunday, September 27th at 6 pm.
  • All online auction items can be mailed UNLESS they are too large or have a Capital Region only restriction. Please read details.
  • Watch the Gala Program Here (Viewing Link will open on Saturday, September 26t at 5 pm):


  • Donate to help provide our programming free of charge to children living with a serious illness.

Thank you so much for joining us and for helping the Double H Ranch continue providing memorable camp experiences for our campers living with a serious illness during these difficult times.
