Camp fYrefly Events

Jeff Straker, Saturday, April 22, 2017


In support of the 9th Camp fYrefly Saskatchewan, we will be hosting our biennial fundraising event …fYrefly…

But this time, instead of a dinner, we’re treating our guests to an intimate house concert by Saskatchewan superstar, and longtime Camp fYrefly Saskatchewan supporter, Jeffery Straker!

Jeffery Straker singingJeffery and his piano-folk-pop music are often compared to a mixture of early Elton John, Billy Joel, Sarah Slean and Harry Chapin. Originally from small town Saskatchewan, the classically trained pianist swears he was born under a piano on the family farm. Jeffery has recorded for CBC radio’s ‘Canada Live’, charted in the top 10 on Much More Music Canada and toured nationally and internationally, including recent sold-out concerts with Canadian symphony orchestras in Saskatoon and Regina. In 2014 he did Canada proud by winning the prestigious Vina del Mar song competition in Chile.

And now he’s all ours for an evening.

We are planning a glittering evening of fine wine, magnificent entertainment, and gourmet desserts. Since the first …fYrefly… event, our guests, who this year will be asked to commit a minimum of $200 each in donations, have helped raise nearly $100,000 for Camp fYrefly Saskatchewan!

We want to keep the momentum going. So again, we ask for your help. Here are some ways:

  1. SAVE THE DATE – If you’d like to be one of only fifty guests at ….fYrefly…, please mark April 22 on your calendar and email to RSVP and reserve your spot(s).

  2. Become a fYrefly…Event Sponsor for $500. You will be recognized at the event, on our website, in our Star Phoenix Thank You Ad, and forever by our campers.

  3. Become a special BURNING BRIGHT…fYrefly… Sponsor. The total of this sponsorship is $1,500. We would be happy to have this sponsorship shared by two or more individuals/organizations. In addition to being recognized at the event, on our website, in our Star Phoenix Thank You Ad, and forever by our campers, this sponsorship comes with two complimentary tickets to …fYrefly…
