Aldersgate After Dark Brings the Italian Flare This Spring

As Camp Aldersgate prepares for its annual After Dark event, this time it’s looking to the sunny shores of the Amalfi coast for the 2023 Italian-themed bash.

Ciao After Dark will be held on Friday, April 21, on the grounds of Camp Aldersgate, where guests will find a recreated Italian “beach club” atmosphere under the Arkansas stars.

The evening will include lots of good eats (gelato included), live music, a pop-up market and an outdoor movie screening. Attendees are also encouraged to dress in their favorite travel wear from sundresses to straw hats. 

Making a special return this year is Shannon Aston, who served as chair of the the first Aldersgate After Dark and will step into the role once more.

“It’s so exciting seeing the transformation the event has taken over the years,” Aston says. “So when I was invited to chair the event this year, I jumped at the opportunity.”

Proceeds from the evening will further the camp’s mission to provide life-changing experiences for individuals with special needs.
