8 Hours for $80,000

8 Hours for $80,000 is a Telethon-based event happening on November 21, 2020! We will spend 8 hours from 9am-5pm livestreaming - there will be some 'blast from the past' excitement, ways for you to get involved in the fun, and plenty of entertainment for all ages! You do not need to register for this event.


2020 is a year none of us planned for. When the pandemic was announced at the beginning of March, Covid-19 posed as a threat to our "normal". Schools, clubs, retreats and finally, the cancellation of Summer Camps results in a loss of almost $700,000. This wasn't the story that God would write for us this summer. The story God was writing was bigger than we could have imagined.

In April, we started Evergreen To-Go: a frozen meal program. In addition to the meals purchased by our supporters, we were able to donate 1100 meals to Pregnancy Care Centres in Central Alberta, Next Step Ministries, and hurting families in our communities. Eagle Builders out of Blackfalds and Food Rescue provided $16,500 to help us give those meals away!

In June, we launched Wholehearted Camping - a type of Family Camp program that saw 1600 through our gates in 10 weeks of the summer. 60% of those families had never been to Camp Evergreen before! 

We want to continue to offer programs and services that are needed by our communities. This is where 8 Hours for $80,000 comes in. We see Covid-19 not as a threat but as an opportunity. Money raised during this fundraiser will be for our General Operating Fund and will go towards getting us ready for the upcoming camping season admidst the loss of our Guest Groups.
