Hi!  I’m Camille Dierksheide, a mom, classically trained singer, and Staunton resident.  I started EXTREME crafting during the pandemic so I wouldn’t lose my mind!! 

The result was a front yard Halloween display that received so much attention we decided to use it for some greater purpose.

The Whimsically Witchy Halloween-inspired fundraiser to support public school arts programs was born!

When you visit the display, just scan the QR code to donate to art and music through the  Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge.  Choose "Whimsically Witchy" in the drop down menu labeled "Apply my Donation to".

This year we're proud to expand our reach to support not one, but all three public elementary schools in Staunton, VA.  Ultimately we would like to raise enough money to augment arts funding in all of Staunton City Schools.
