What a Night!
Over 150 households joined us last week in support of our campers and together we raised $53,000! This is a huge accomplishment for our community, and these funds will ensure our programs remain financially accessible for our campers and their families.
Watch the replay of the Showcase Vol. II here:
Join us for Camp Kirk Showcase Vol. II
We loved our first virtual showcase so much, we’ve decided to do it again.
On April 29th, stay home and join us for an evening filled with music in support of our campers. Ticket purchase is by donation, and it will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Dean Connor and Maris Uffelmann – doubling the impact of your gift!
All funds raised on the 29th will help empower neurodiverse kids and youth to reach their potential. Through therapeutic recreation programs, your support helps kids with attention deficit disorders, autism, and learning disabilities build their confidence and a sense of belonging.
Donate to attend the Showcase and help us reach our $25,000 goal!
