Tawakoni, your regional camp and conference center, invites more than 500 campers and staff to “be still … and know God” each summer. Additionally, the year-round facilities host a variety of groups for overnight and day events including church camp, Disciples Men and Women’s retreats, weddings, family reunions and more.
To support these programs and the facilities needed to accommodate them, Tawakoni hosts an annual gala and auction fundraiser. Proceeds support capital improvements and raise money for camp scholarships.
This year, we are doing something a little different. The risks associated with COVID-19 make gathering at Tawakoni an impossibility. Instead we are hosting an online auction November 7-14.
We are asking for donations of gift certificates or gift cards of $10 or more for goods, experiences, and/or services. These can be mailed to or dropped off at any of the locations listed below. Each donation needs to include a Gala Donation Form (download here).
All donations need to be received at Dropoff location no later than Friday, October 16. Call drop off location for specific hours.
- Topeka Regional Office, 2914 SW MacVicar Ave, Topeka, 785-266-2914
- Central/High Plains Regional Satellite Office, 5230 Broadway Ave, Great Bend, 620-792-6490

Then, we need you to go to the Tawakoni Gala Auction Site between November 7 and November 14, register for your bid number, and bid on your favorite items. All week long we will premiere videos on our Facebook page to highlight some of the items up for auction.
