4th Annual DPAF Silent Auction benefiting Camp Wonder – May 20 – June 8, 2019 – NOW OPEN!
Each year the DPAF hosts an annual silent auction in honor of the Children’s Skin Disease Foundation’s (CSDF) Camp Wonder. Camp Wonder is a 1-week summer camp for children with severe to life-threatening skin diseases. The camp provides children with the unique opportunity to “just be a kid” away from the prying eyes of the public and those who may not understand their condition. The camp houses the campers and provides 24/7 medical staff to ensure the health and safety of children during their stay. Each year, the Foundation sets a goal of raising $20,000 from the proceeds of the Silent Auction. This goal allows us to sponsor 10 deserving children to attend camp as well as 2 PA volunteers. As part of our mission to provide philanthropic opportunities for PAs in dermatology, we send two PAs to volunteer and we provide them each with a travel stipend so that they can invest all of their energy into helping the camp kids.
This year, the DPAF will be hosting its 4th Annual Silent Auction in honor of Camp Wonder. Our 2018 auction was a huge success raising over $11,500 for Camp Wonder. Auction items ranged from Wine Packages with Napa wine tours, Family fun packages with Radio Flyer Wagons, Dermatology and educational tools, art, and more.
The auction opens online May 20, 2019 and closes June 8, 2019 at 1:00 PM EST. We will be auctioning off special items specific to the conference in Washington D.C. area and the conference itself. These items will have earlier close dates so you can take full advantage of your winning item while at the conference! So be sure to mark the date and win big! All net proceeds go to Camp Wonder so not only do you win, but the campers win!
