Join us at Joy Lutheran Church in Gurnee from 6 pm to 7 am. Attendees are welcome to bring a tent, sleep in their car, and enjoy food and games throughout the night. Registration is free and participants who raise a minimum of $25 per person, by donating or fundraising at least this amount, will gain access to the event and entry into this year’s raffle.
Connect with your family, friends, community organization, classmates, or co-workers by camping out in your backyard/living room/campground, hosting a digital fundraiser to support the folks in our community experiencing homelessness, and joining us for a virtual rally to celebrate.
