August 2015

At the August 18, 2015 board meeting, the Aberdeen Hotel Alliance presented the following events, groups, and organizations with approved funding for their event.

Chroma Camp

Attendees of Chroma Camp Festival will enjoy music, laughter, art and sunshine to the backdrop of the beautifully scenic Richmond Youth Camp. Chroma Camp will feature: notable live musical performances from over 50 regional performers, delicious local cuisine, dance, yoga and art workshops, interactive art and art installations, seminars, a disc golf tournament, and spoken word/poetry jam, along with three nights of friends, great times, and plenty of great memories!

With enough support this year, we will develop this into an annual event that will continue to raise funds in the community for various causes for years to come. Through your sponsorship we will be able to provide our community with a chance to join together as we rally behind a life-giving cause.
