Whiskey, Wine, and Wheels
Friday, August 9, 2019

The Painted Turtle was grateful to be a joint beneficiary, alongside the Children’s Center of the Antelope Valley, of the Whiskey, Wine and Wheels event at the Hot Rod Garage in Lancaster. Guests had the chance to taste 90+ point wines from St. Michelle Wine Estates and top whiskeys from Jameson and others, all while being able to feast their eyes on one-of-a-kind cars and learn more about both non-profits. The event included fabulous music, dinner, and an incredible live auction with funds supporting both organizations and their worthwhile missions.


Tour de Turtle & Turtle Trek
Saturday, April 27, 2019

This year over 200 people participated in the 8th Annual Tour de Turtle and 3rd Annual Turtle Trek.  The Tour de Turtle cyclists rode one of three fully supported routes (20 miles, 30 miles or 60 miles) through Elizabeth Lake, Spunky Canyon, and Bouquet Canyon.  While this was going on, our Turtle Trekkers walked, ran, or rolled around Camp enjoying games and dancing at various stations.  Afterwards, families and friends enjoyed a delicious lunch, live music, and games on the lawn.


Bingo at The Roxy

Bingo!! Celebrating it’s 15th year, The Painted Turtle’s annual Bingo at The Roxy proved to be a smashing success! Jay Leno, Lisa Kudrow, Debbie Allen, Kenny Ortega and many other celebrity guests called numbers for prizes ranging from his and hers mountain bikes to VIP tickets to Coachella to fabulous vacations at the Four Seasons in Maui!! All proceeds raised from the event directly benefit The Painted Turtle, sending even more children and families to camp!

The North Los Angeles Regional Advisory Board produced another amazing evening as they hosted the 13th annual Hoedown BBQ on Saturday, October 27, 2018 to raise funds to send more children to Camp! This country-style event included delicious food with all the fixin’s from Rattlers, foot tappin’ live entertainment from the Hit Machine, beer and wine, exclusive camp tours, and amazing silent and live auctions with prizes ranging from adventurous trips, fine jewelry, home packages, autographed sports memorabilia, and more! An inspirational speech from a Painted Turtle camper topped off the evening and reminded guests what the evening was truly all about.
