Dream Ball Save The Date 2023

29th Annual Dream Ball 2023

We are excited to announce the 29th Annual Dream Ball Fire & Ice at the Lindsay’s Victoria Park Armoury on November 18th to raise money to support camp programs for kids in the Kawartha Lakes.

The ball includes dinner, dancing, live & online auctions, and with Fire & Ice as the theme. We are happy to bring back the Sonic Hearts Band once again to get our feet dancing!

Proceeds from the Dream Ball will go to the summer camp funds at BGC Kawarthas Foundation and the Kawartha-Haliburton Children's Foundation (KHCF). The dollars are used to subsidize summer camp experiences for children and youth. 

The Dream Ball Committee will be looking for volunteers to help with 2023. Anyone interested in working with the decorating committee should contact Laurie Richards at lrichards@bgckawarthas.com.

What are we fundraising for?

The Kelli Mitchell Fund was established in 1997 in memory of a special little girl who had a love for the outdoors and helping other children. Kelli had been a regular participant in the Summer Camp Program at BGC Kawarthas. The Mitchell family wanted to ensure all kids have the opportunity to participate in summer camp. Attending camp with all of its challenges, experiences and skill based learning has a positive impact on children’s development. Children who attend camp develop social skills, grow emotionally, become more self-confident, gain physical skills and learn more about their environment. Children make friendships that can turn into lasting relationships. They can develop leadership skills and learn to work together as a group. They have an opportunity to try new things that they would not access at school. With the support of generous donors and now the proceeds of the Dream Ball, the Club can guarantee that no child will ever be denied access to summer camp due to financial difficulties.


Dream Ball Committee also invites you if you are unable to attend the event to make a donation in lieu of your normal contributions and ticket purchases and to participate in the online auction.
