As you probably know if you're seeing this, in light of the recent wave of COVID-19 and especially the increased transmissibility of the Delta variant, Hilary Alexander made the tough decision to cancel Camp Hollywood this year.
Unfortunately, this means that there are a lot of non-refundable costs: deposits, equipment rentals, insurance, flights, merch design and production, etc. Like "five figures" a lot.
This event is Hilary's livelihood, and this is coming out of her pocket. "Catastrophic" is a not an overstatement of the financial impact this will have on her and her family.
Hilary took the risk to put on an event that would have let us celebrate the "beginning of the end", something which we would have all benefited from and delighted in. She shouldn't bear the costs of this alone.
If you were registered for Camp Hollywood, if you were thinking of registering, if you hope to attend in the future, or if you just have it in your heart to help someone who's built and run a cornerstone event in our community for almost a quarter of a century, please contribute.
