Day 2

We had a donation come in overnight to help us start our final day at $10,700!

We continued the day with a dollar-for-dollar match and donations streamed in during the morning rush hour. By 9:00 a.m. we hit $14,975!

Basil Klassen stopped by and told us about his time at Camp Arnes. He's been on staff since 1986. He says that he loves meeting new people and predicts that over the last 32 years he's washed about a million dishes.

Because of the incredible impact camp had on one donor's life, an anonymous donation of $25,000 was made to Camp Arnes!! That pushed us OVER our initial goal of $42,000 and led to Mike Thom getting hit with a bunch of paint arrows.

At 2:00 p.m., Edna from the kitchen joined us and challenged anyone who had a plate washed by her to make a donation. That would cover anyone who has come to camp over the past 17 years.

To finish the day, we sent Aleah on the giant swing to celebrate the incredible donations Camp Arnes received over the past two days. It was a great way to complete the incredible radiothon that saw Arnes exceed their goal thanks to many generous donors. The final total was $57,210.

Day 1

We are getting set to kick off the A Place To Grow Radiothon! We'll be live at Camp Arnes for Wednesday, June 13, and Thursday, June 14.

Listen for stories of transformation in young peoples' lives thanks to the important work of Camp Arnes.

So far we've had some great challenges! Krueger Enterprise challenged roofing companies to donate, and Commercial Pool and Rec. 

Also, a current Camp Arnes staff member called in and donated $100. They challenged all past & present staff to call in with donations whether big or small. "There are so many of us out there, think of the difference we could make if we all donated!"

DeFehr Furniture donated $1,000 to be used as a dollar-for-dollar match to help us hit our goal of $7,500 by 12:30 today. Thanks to your generosity, we got to send Liberty flying down the zipline!

At 3:00 p.m. we launched our end of day one challenge. We're aiming for $20,000 by 6:30 p.m., which will let some kids try out the Leap of Faith.
