Camp Sunshine

Camp Sunshine is an incredible organization in Casco, Maine. They provide lasting memories for kids with life-threatening illnesses and their families to enjoy a bit of "normal" camp life.

It's free for families and Camp Sunshine offers programs catered to various illnesses so campers and families can also network and bond with other families going through the same thing. Throughout the course of the day families will enjoy games, arts & crafts, pool time, movies, and more.

Maine Suitcase Party

One of their biggest fundraisers is the Maine Suitcase Party. These parties have raised nearly $700,000 for Camp Sunshine thus far.

This year the event is scheduled for September 17th fittingly at MAC Air's private hanger at the Portland International Jetport.

What is a Suitcase Party?

In some instances, suitcase parties mean showing up to a party with your bags packed to immediately leave the venue if you're the winner. For this event, the trip is scheduled for January 9th.

The trip up for grabs is a private chartered jet to Miami for the weekend so you and a guest can attend a Patriots vs. Dolphins game as well as ground transportation, luxury accommodations, and a $500 Visa gift card.

There are three ticket options available. $100 gets you the First Class Ticket. This will get you into the big party for your chance to go to Miami. For $250 you'll get the Jetsetter Ticket. This ticket gets you in, a drink coupon, access to the private VIP lounge, and you get to the jet for photos. For $1,000 you can purchase the Co-Pilot Package which gets you 12 First Class Tickets for the price of 10. Perfect for treating an office looking for a night out. There will also be a silent auction at the event.
