Sherkston Shores supports Make-a-Wish Canada®

Sherkston Shores is proud to announce that they are once again taking part in the 3rd annual Canadian RVing and Camping Week fundraiser event in support of Make-a-Wish® Canada to help raise funds for children facing life-threatening illnesses.

Sherkston Shores is just one of the many campgrounds across Canada participating in this fundraising event and hopes to grow the event within the Sherkston Community.

“This is Sherkston’s second year participating in this amazing fundraiser,” says Lauren Charette, Lifestyles and Entertainment Manager at Sherkston Shores. “Last year we saw many of our cottage owners and seasonal renters, both old and new, join together to support the Make-a-Wish® Canada Foundation and this year it is our goal to encourage and engage not only our residents but members from our neighbouring communities as well.”

To help raise funds for Make-A-Wish®, campers are encouraged to purchase and fill out Wish Stars (100 % of the proceeds from Wish Stars will be donated to Make-A-Wish.) At dusk on May 27, 2017, the Sherkston Shores community will gather on Quarry Beach to light up their wish stars and to celebrate the start of summer with a bonfire and smores.

Didn’t have time to purchase a Wish Star? No problem. Donations for Make-a-Wish® Canada will also be accepted at the bonfire.

“It is such a great feeling to see our community come together to support such an important organization,” says Charette. “Hopefully our Wish Stars will make a difference for a sick child in need.”

Start your summer at Sherkston off right by taking part in this great event! For more information regarding the May 27th bonfire event, or how you can participate, please contact our Lifestyles Manager Lauren at
