Camping the Night Away is CCC’s signature fundraising event. It offers a fun, camp-themed evening of drinks, delicious food, auctions, raffles and more! The proceeds from the night help make Camp Heart Connection programming possible, including Oncology, Sibling, Spring and Fall Family, Teen and Day Camps. These camps are all provided at no cost to CCC families thanks in part to these events. Recommended dress is business or cocktail attire. 

This event is designated as a Birdies For Charity partnership event. The Principal Charity Classic’s Birdies for Charity program is a matching funds program that benefits children in Iowa. Children’s Cancer Connection is proud to be one of the partner charities. If you would like to learn more about Birdies For Charity, click here.
