Camp Rise Above, the local nonprofit founded in Mt. Pleasant more than twelve years ago, is hosting its first ever Glamping Gala fundraiser on March 10, 2023 at the beautiful Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation. This black-tie event will showcase the magic of camp with live music, dinner, drinks, glamping lounge areas, a live auction and more.

Working closely with local sponsors such as Starling Chevrolet, South Carolina Federal Credit Union and Hill & Co. Creative, this event will provide a unique gala experience new to the Lowcountry. Guests will enjoy live music, whimsical décor, and luxury auction items. Special appearances and surprises will add to the evening’s entertainment.

“We have always believed that all individuals deserve to experience the magic of belonging, regardless of their medical condition, diagnosis, or disability. The Glamping Gala will allow us to celebrate our community of supporters while growing to serve more families in our community. We are thrilled to introduce this event at beautiful venue, and we are grateful for the constant support and generosity of our community in helping advance the mission of Camp Rise Above,” said Erin Ulmer, Executive Director.
