Summer Fun Fundraiser For Good Shepherd Shelter

  • Bar Food

Our Summer Fun Fundraiser aims to raise at least $6,000 for the children at the Good Shepherd Shelter (“GSS”) for a two-week Summer Camp Program on the GSS Campus. Specifically, the money raised will help fund the CRE Outreach Performing Arts Program. CRE uses theatre to enhance self-esteem, encourage self-expression and empower individuals to overcome the challenges in their lives. CRE will help create two (2) one week summer theater camps for the children of the Good Shepherd Shelter that will end in a final performance piece of the campers’ creations.

The children at the Good Shepherd Shelter, however, are unable to leave campus this summer to attend summer camp, and are unable to afford the summer camps that many of our children enjoy. Therefore, we want to bring summer camp to them, and our Summer Fun Fundraiser will help to do just that!

The proceeds from the Summer Fun Fundraiser will go towards paying trained CRE Theater instructors, costumes, props, creating/writing the script, printing costs, summer camp supplies, filed trips, insurance and other elements necessary for creating and producing a theatrical performance piece at the GSS Summer Camp.

If you are interested in sponsoring or  donating to our event, please email Olivia@goodshepherdshelter.org or Debbie@goodshepherdshelter.org for more information.

You can also donate here!

Night At the Theater

The Good Shepherd Guild invites you to join them for a Night at the Theater to benefit the Shelter - Saturday, May 30th - at the Fremont Centre Theatre in South Pasadena.


Over eight years ago, Anne Elliot broke her true love's heart. Now, the end of a fortune-changing war has brought him back into her life. Though the bloom of her youth has faded, she cannot help but secretly hope for a second chance at love. "The Elliots" brings us the wit and romance of Austen's earlier works ("Sense and Sensibility," "Pride and Prejudice") tempered by the wisdom, regret, and audacious hope of age.

Please join us after the show for a hosted cocktail reception in the theater's courtyard where you'll have the opportunity to mingle with fellow Shelter supporters and with members of the show's cast and crew.

Proceeds to benefit Good Shepherd Shelter's summer program in collaboration with CRE Outreach Performing Arts camp.
