Camp Kesem at Emory University, an organization dedicated to supporting children through and beyond their parent’s cancer, announces its annual Make the Magic event Friday, March 24, 2017 from 7:30- 9:30 p.m. at the Miller-Ward Alumni House (815 Houston Mill Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30329).
Camp Kesem is the only national organization dedicated to the over 3 million children who have been touched by a parent’s cancer. For many children, their Camp Kesem experience is a life-changing event - providing them a community of children with similar experiences and a safe and welcoming environment to have fun and rediscover their childhood.
Driven by passionate college student volunteers, Camp Kesem at Emory University supports the children throughout the state of Georgia. Funds raised during this annual fundraising night of dinner, philanthropy, and entertainment will help provide year-long peer support and send 75 campers to camp from July 2 to July 7. The event will include a dinner, a paddle raise auction, and a camper and camper parent as guest speakers. For more information on the event and tickets ($45 per person and $450 for a table of 10), please visit http://tinyurl.com/EmoryMakeTheMagic.
There are countless families who have found joy in Camp Kesem. Campers such as fourteen-year-old Nala, who will also be a guest speaker for the night, will benefit from funds raised during this inspirational evening.
