Coming up next weekend here at Camden on the Lake Resort, we will once again have the pleasure of hosting a very special weekend to benefit the Folds of Honor Organization. Since 2007, the Folds of Honor has carried forth this singular, noble mission: to provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members. This year for our Folds of Honor benefit weekend, we will have the double-pleasure of welcoming singer and Veteran ChristiAna and her band to the Horny Toad Entertainment Complex.
Not only is it ChristiAna’s debut on the Horny Toad stage but she is here for TWO spectacular shows – both Friday and Saturday night! The shows are open to the public with no cover charge to get in. Guests and concert-goers will have plenty of opportunities to donate directly to Folds of Honor throughout the weekend. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from the weekend at the Horny Toad Entertainment Complex will go directly to Folds of Honor.
This has been an extremely popular weekend of events in the past and for good reason! You can bring your family and friends out to view high quality live entertainment brought to you for free PLUS you’ll have a chance to give back to a very special cause. It’s also Father’s Day Weekend, giving you the perfect excuse to whisk Dad off for an evening of entertainment or a weekend getaway.
Folds of Honor
Folds of Honor has been providing educational scholarships to the families of America’s fallen and disabled service-members since 2007. It was founded by Lt Col Dan Rooney when “returning home from his second tour of duty in Iraq, Lt Col Dan Rooney, an F-16 Fighter Pilot in the Air Force Reserves, became painfully aware of the reality families face when a loved one in uniform is fallen or disabled.” You can read the rest of Lt Col Dan Rooney’s story, watch the video and learn all about the work Folds of Honor does at www.foldsofhonor.com.
ChristiAna is a Missouri-based artist along with her band singing and playing multiple genres such as country, rock, southern rock, funk, pop and R&B. She is also a Veteran of the US Army Military Police Corps and has served in Iraq and Korea as well as serving as a Military Police Drill Sergeant at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri. She’s performed with Lee Brice at the Academy of Country Music Salute to Troops Special and has even sung at The White House for a Veterans Day Salute to Troops Special performing to a crowd of over 1000 military members, high ranking military and civilian leaders to include the President of the United States in November 2014.
Guests and concert-goers will have another chance to give back to Folds of Honor by participating in a Silent Auction Saturday night. The auction will include sports memorabilia, weekend stays at Camden, golf packages, coolers, and much more! You’ll have to come by the resort to see the items and bid for yourself.
At the Horny Toad
We’re so excited and honored to have ChristiAna scheduled to perform for two nights on the Horny Toad stage. Here’s a look at what else is happening that weekend:
DJ Lou Diesel will be out and about the whole weekend on the Horny Toad Boardwalk, spinning at the pool in the afternoons and introducing the band in the evenings. Don’t forget to cruise by and join in some of the friendly competition of games and contests he hosts.
Shawn C. will be setting the mood in H. Toad’s Bar & Grill Friday and Saturday night from 6:30pm-10:30pm. You can enjoy his acoustic set while you dine before heading out to party it up on the Boardwalk with ChristiAna.
Bloody Mary Bar & Bottomless Mimosas return Saturday and Sunday in H. Toad’s from 9am-1pm. In the mood for sweet or savory? We’ve got both. Choose to build your own Bloody Mary from the bar of selections or sip on the satisfying mixture of a Mimosa to accompany your brunch.
