Celebrating 94 years of changing lives!
October 28, 2023
Join us for a fun and engaging evening celebrating the Camp Ho Mita Koda Foundation and the T1D community.
Our annual Backpack Bivouac fundraiser and celebration is back for the 29th year this year as we raise funds to allow us to continue offering unparalleled camp experiences and community for children and participants living with diabetes.
We take pride in our ability to offer traditional camp experiences with fun and engaging diabetes education and 24/7 medical care. Perhaps most importantly, our camps foster the ability for these youth to build relationships and community, realizing they are not alone in living with diabetes. The Camp Ho Mita Koda Foundation would not be possible without the generous donations of time, money, and supplies from our T1D community.

This evening, you have the opportunity to make a direct contribution to our mission and help fund our campership program and dedicated facilities project.
Giving levels include:
Our live auction features items/experiences for guests to bid on. It’s competitive and sometimes a nail-biting experience for bystanders, wondering who will end up claiming their prize. It is always a wonderful time for everyone.
A 50/50 raffle is like a party where someone could leave with a cash prize. Participants purchase tickets, and the winner walks away with half the total money raised while the rest goes straight to your charity. The cool thing about a 50/50 raffle is that the more entries you get, the more the pot grows.
True to their name, raffle baskets feature a collection of themed items beautifully arranged in a basket and raffled off as a fundraising prize.
Supporters will purchase ‘wine pulls’ for a set price. They can then pull a wrapped wine bottle (wrapped to hide the bottle and value) from a selection of expensive, medium range, and cheap wines.
