Mark Twain: Outloud – A YMCA Camp Pepin Scholarship Fundraiser
At Camp Pepin this fall, you can gaze out at the beauty of the Mississippi from the spacious indoor dining hall while listening to Mark Twain’s stories about this mighty river, and it’s all for a good cause!
The YMCA Camp Pepin Scholarship Fundraiser event includes brunch and a 45-minute live performance of Mark Twain: Outloud. Adapted and performed by renowned local playwrights Jessica Zuehlke and Jim Stowell, and based on Mark Twain’s book Life on the Mississippi, the performance first premiered at this past year’s Big Turn Music Festival in Red Wing to a standing-room only crowd.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward the Camp Pepin Scholarship Fund, which helps families be able to send their children to camp. Since 1935, the Red Wing YMCA’s Camp Pepin has made a difference in the lives of kids and teens through its summer resident and day camps by fostering an atmosphere of inclusion, collaboration, and community. Few environments are as transformational as summer camp, and Camp Pepin wants to ensure that as many children as possible are able to experience their programming.
Cost: $50 per ticket. Includes brunch and performance. All proceeds benefit the Camp Pepin Scholarship Fund. For more information, visit redwingymca.
