Friday Mixer: Just to clarify, the Friday night Poolside Mixer is a combined event with the Saturday night dinner and dancing. We must pay the Hilton for both nights, so we appreciate your understanding. You must be registered for Saturday to attend Friday.

Hotel: The Hilton has agreed to a discounted rate of $169 (plus taxes and resort fees) until the hotel is nearly full, or September 26th, whichever comes first. Tell them you are with the Camelback High School Class of 1969 to get this rate.  This is peak season for events in Phoenix, so the sooner you reserve your room, the better.

Need Assistance?  We do not want costs to prevent ANY classmate from attending! If you need assistance, contact Stalker Reed 404.519.9169 or Sue Humphrey 512.751.4551 for more information. Assistance will be strictly confidential. The assistance fund is limited so please contact them early.

 Give Assistance? *New Information: If you would like to contribute, you will see an option to contribute during Registration; or, you can click on the Donations Tab on the left toolbar.  Suggested amounts are listed; however, you may donate any amount you wish. Our sincere thanks to all of you who have donated to our Assistance Fund so far! 

The first priority of the assist fund is to help classmates with registration costs. The second priority is to help pay for reunion costs (only if we do not meet our quota of 100-110 registrations). We are now at 75.  We do not anticipate having to use the Assistance Fund for expenses, but we will not know until we reach our quota.

It is our greatest wish to be able to write a big, fat check to the McKinney Kids, which is an organization at Camelback that helps provide homeless kids with books and clothes.  Once we have paid our expenses, all remaining money in our Reunion Account, and in the Assistance Fund, will be donated to the McKinney Kids. Thank you again for your generosity!
