Starry Nights Gala Raised Record $250,000 for Camp Allen

Paynes at Starry Nights
Honorees Barbara and Bishop Claude Payne

Friends of Camp Allen gathered last Thursday evening at the Junior League of Houston for the 11th annual Starry Nights and Campfire Lights. The event was a complete success with a sellout crowd and a record $250,000 raised for scholarships and programs at Camp Allen.  

Starry Nights and Campfire Lights is one way that to bring our camp and the mission to the city for one night of celebrating God’s goodness to his children.  Those that attended were treated to a lively auction led by the Rev. Patrick Miller and a presentation honoring Barbara and the The Rt. Rev. Claude Payne. The evening also included the unveiling of the Camp Allen's Centennial Fund; a nine-year capital campaign featuring 21 projects emphasizing preservation, restoration, and innovation. The campaign is scheduled to be completed in 2021, the year of the camp's 100th anniversary.

Camp Allen would like to thank all that supported event, especially Starry Nights chairs Charles & Barbara Kraft and Wendy & Bill Chiles.
