A local foundation geared towards improving the lives of people of all abilities through education, recreation, and growth wants to make sure everyone can get involved. Camp Kostopulos is holding a Fundraiser Gala and everyone is invited. Mircea Divricean, Camp K’s CEO, and Ben McKenna joined Midday with the details.
The “Send a Kid to Camp” Fundraiser Gala is taking place at the Salt Lake Marriott Downtown at City Creek on Friday, May 6, 2016 at 6:00 P.M. Individual tickets are $150, but other options to become a Platinum, Gold, or Silver sponsor are available. Proceeds will benefit the kids of Camp Kostopulos
Ben has been coming to Camp K for 9 years. In addition to Spina Bifida, he also had a kidney transplant and other medical issues. While his life has been filled with medical setbacks, Ben told Good4Utah’s Don Hudson in an interview last October that he has always been able to look forward to his time at Camp K.
“I use to have a lot of medical stuff and I’d come here and I would just forget all my issues and all the problems I use to have,” shared Ben “It gives me a sense of security that I am not the only one out there who is different.”
