Planning begins for Camp For All 2020 Gala
More than 40 people turned out to “Paint the Town” to support the efforts of Camp For All.
Beth Clarke opened her Memorial-area home on Thursday, May 16, to about 40 host friends, supporters, and committee and board members to share their plans for the “Paint The Town” gala, the main fundraiser for Camp For All.
The planning session was hosted by gala co-chairs, Clarke and Leslie Schick.
Camp For All is a barrier-free camp which works in partnership with other not-for-profit organizations to benefit children and adults “with challenging illnesses or special needs and their families throughout the year.”
According to a news release, the “Paint the Town” Gala annually raises “close to half of $2.4 million needed to host 11,000 children and adults with a number of differences and health challenges, from cancer to autism, and experience ‘can do’ at the unique, barrier-free camp.” The gala is scheduled for Jan. 25, 2020.
Camp For All attendees have challenges including “cancer, autism, muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, severe burns, sickle cell, cerebral palsy, cognitive challenges, cardiac issues, PKU, NF, HIV, dermatological issues, spinal cord injuries and more. The children and adults come from the greater Houston area and southeast Texas and several of the camps draw nationally and internationally.”
