The High Chaparral Reunion is proud to announce the first in a series of fundraising events in honor of Cameron Mitchell—over very own Uncle Buck Cannon—and we’re a part of it!

Bryan Sellers, who is leading the grassroots efforts in York County, Penn., to recognize the famous native son, says “How to Marry a Millionaire” will be shown at the Zion Lutheran Church in Glen Rock, Penn., on Sept. 27.  Donations will be accepted at the door, and all monies raised will be applied to the Cameron Mitchell Scholarship Sponsored by The High Chaparral Reunion, with Special Recognition for Helena Hartenstein.  (Ms. Hartenstein was Cameron’s high school teacher who encouraged his acting career and even gave him money to go to New York.)

The Reunion’s special events section has been working behind the scenes with Bryan and his team for several months to move this effort forward.   The evening will include personal appearances by Cameron’s nephews, Marc and Roark, along with Cam photos and memorabilia.  There will also be food and door prizes.

The Cameron Mitchell Scholarship sponsored by The High Chaparral Reunion, with Special Recognition for Helena Hartenstein will be administered by the Southern York County School District Foundation overseen by Dr. Wayne McCullough. Special thanks to the Glen Rock Historic Preservation Society for sponsoring this event and the Zion Lutheran Church for allowing the hosting!.  

The High Chaparral Reunion special events team, headed by Reunion CEO/Producer Penny McQueen and coordinated by Marianne Rittner-Holmes, will continue to work with the local York, PA team so stay tuned for information on how you can help to make Cameron’s scholarship a reality.  It will benefit high school seniors in his home area who wish to pursue college studies in theater, film, media arts, and/or journalism.
