1st Annual SuperBowlSplash
Thank you to everyone who joined in the fun at the first annual Super Bowl Splash on Sunday, February 2, hosted by Gerber Finance Foundation!
Eagle Dock Beach was awash in sunshine with a festive scene and a sold out crowd. Swimmers and their families arrived to enjoy delicious pastries, sandwiches, s’mores, Bloody Mary’s and more. While the youngest cheerleaders explored the wintry beach, requested balloon animals, and sat patiently to have their faces painted, old friends and new were made. We spoke about our camp and what it means for the community to come together and fundraise, with thanks to Gerber for being the brainchild for this incredible new tradition. Everyone lined up at the waterfront, and then the swimmers ran into the splash to the soundtrack of whoops and cheers from the crowd. The water was cold and the dip was quick, but that morning we all felt that summer is just around the corner!
We want to thank sponsors, participants and first responders for joining together for the morning in support of NSHH summer camp. Everyone’s chattering about bringing their friends to do the splash next year, and we can’t wait!

Annual Spring Benefit 2019
Celebrate the Night in White !
On June 8, more than 300 guests dressed in white came to HOLIDAY HOUSE to celebrate and support our campers for our annual Spring Benefit. This year’s theme was “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow”, a well know Audrey Hepburn quote chosen by honoree Francine Rexer. Benefit Chairs Coriander Smyth and Tracey Kaplan and their Benefit Committee transformed our rustic camp into a magical evening garden party befitting our lovely honorees.
Mrs. Rexer was honored with her daughters Elizabeth Rexer Leonard, Patricia Rexer Euvrard, and Louise Rexer Smith for their years of support of NORTH SHORE HOLIDAY HOUSE. The Rexer family involvement began when Elizabeth Rexer Leonard was asked to plant a vegetable garden for the campers. The Rexer family went on to host several fundraisers for Holiday House at Mrs. Rexer’s beloved clothing shop, Rexer-Parkes. Their efforts helped raise funds for a new swimming pool and towards our new pavilion.
In true Rexer fashion, the night was a tremendous success. The laid back but elegant atmosphere provided the perfect backdrop for our Spring Benefit, our biggest fundraiser each year. A highlight of the evening was the dedication the Rexer Family Vegetable Garden in honor of Francine and her daughters. We are forever thankful for their support of our mission and our campers.
