NEWS Camp Kesem to host 'Make the Magic' event April 10

 

Rice University's chapter of Camp Kesem, an organization dedicated to helping children through and beyond their parent's cancer, will host its first "Make the Magic" event Friday, April 10, from 6:15 to 9 p.m. at Rice's Cohen House, 6100 Man Street.

Founded in 2013, Camp Kesem Rice is one of 54 student chapters in the national organization, the country's only nonprofit dedicated to organizing free summer camps to provide emotional support, camaraderie and fun experiences for the often-overlooked population of children affected by a parent's cancer. Camp Kesem provides a lifelong, peer-support network for these children, anchored in a network of free summer camps that are led by passionate college student volunteers across the country.  

Funds raised during this night of dinner, philanthropy and entertainment will help provide yearlong peer support and send 60 campers to camp Aug. 1-7. The event will include dinner, speeches from a Camp Kesem counselor and family, a paddle-raise fundraiser and fun activities such as ring toss.
