Tawonga Together LIVE 2021

Our Tawonga Together LIVE 2021 concert on April 11 marked Camp Tawonga’s 95th anniversary, bringing together generations of Tawongans for a joyful virtual celebration while raising critical funds for Camp. 

Over 1,000 people on nearly 400 screens tuned in – thank you to everyone who joined us! Our amazing song leaders, musicians and hosts created a truly special program for our community to reconnect with one another, reflect on our history and celebrate our future.

We are deeply grateful to our donors and sponsors for their incredible support, which enabled us to surpass our $300,000 event goal, bringing our grand total to $372,100! Following a particularly challenging budget year for our agency, this support ensures that children will soon be experiencing the life-changing mission of Camp Tawonga this summer.
