  • Halloween Hoopla

    Brigadoon recently reached out to one of our long time donors Sean Brogan and he shared his story of why Brigadoon?
    The group meet Dave McKeage in 2005 and found out that Dave was going through the same type of cancer as their good friend. Dave was looking for seed money to build a place called Brigadoon.
    Our 2020 camp season was a bit different due to Covid 19. So we decided let’s bring back the Hoopla!!
    Brigadoon invites YOU to be part of our 2020 Halloween Hoopla. We will offer a new idea every Saturday in October of some amazing, fun, funraising ideas. So, reach out with your ideas and send us photos to share on social media on how you, your family and friends are enjoying Halloween Hoopla.
    Let’s together surpass the $5,000 raised for Brigadoon Seed money in 2005!

While we know that it won’t be the same, we have been hard at work developing plans for how we can bring some of the magic of what we do at Brigadoon to our campers in their homes.
