We would be grateful if you could reach out to your favorite summer camp vendors for donations for this event. While we have several prizes in the works, we have already confirmed the following:

  • 2 week Summer Arts Camp with Kids Creative in the Upper West Side ($1100 value)
  • 2 tickets to the family concert series sponsored by Kaufman Music Center ($40 value)

Volunteer to Help (we need you!)

The sign-up/rsvp link will have options to sign up to volunteer. We will need help with setting up, clean up, and selling food, snacks and drinks. Your help and involvement is greatly appreciated!
