About this Event

While we are sold out of painting tickets, we invite you to attend this fundraiser to participate in all of the other activities available: raffles, Fill The Cans, and more to benefit Camp Okizu! Thank you so much for your support.

This is a fundraiser for Camp Okizu and named after Chylee Janae. Okizu supports the whole family (patients, siblings, & parents) not only during treatment but after treatment and bereavement as well. Their camps are always FREE. Chylee, her mom, Heidi Humphries, and their family ROARED in support of Camp Okizu. After Chylee's passing three years ago, Heidi is more passionate than ever about continuing the ROAR for Camp Okizu. We found out about it and thought it was perfect timing to create a loving family fundraiser on the beautiful grounds of Indigeny Reserve during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September.

Okizu (oak-eye-zoo) comes from the Sioux language and means unity, to come together, to heal from a hurt, to make whole"

Learn more about Okizu here:

As we struggle with the uncertainty that surrounds us, we are reminded of the uncertainty that surrounds a family experiencing childhood cancer and of their search for support and reassurance. Okizu offers the support, community, and safety that we all seek, especially in difficult times. It costs Okizu approximately $1,000 to host each camper for one week of summer camp. They have had to cancel their major fundraising event of the year due to the COVID crisis and we are hoping to do our small part in showing our support.
