Will you help me give the kids at Camp Sunshine a Terrific (and Delicious) Summer?

I have a fabulous opportunity this summer- and I need your help.

I have been selected from a large pool of applicants as one of ten chef-volunteers with CulinaryCorps – the nation’s first service organization designed specifically for culinary professionals.

On August 24th-28th, I will be traveling with the CulinaryCorps team to Camp Sunshine (right here in Maine!) during the oncology/hematology session. I’d like to think that this would make Ira (my Dad)  so proud- food and children were two of his favorite things. I’m doing this in his memory and because, really how could I not?

It will no doubt be an amazing and transformative trip but I am writing to you because I need your help.

Would you be willing to support our culinary outreach efforts?

As a 100% volunteer-run organization, all funds go directly toward trip logistics and are 100% tax deductible.Your contribution, no matter how big or small, will supply us with the ingredients and equipment necessary to cook alongside the 120+ campers and 75+ volunteers at camp that week.

We will be launching the World of Flavors cooking program, a CulinaryCorps-designed cooking curriculum designed all ages that includes hands-on cooking instruction, healthful ingredient exploration and the much-anticipated Top Chef Sunshine competition. Though above all else, we aim to have lots of delicious fun with families who need it the most.

Thank you for your consideration of this request. Please click on the link below if you feel you are able to contribute. I look forward to updating you at the end of August about the many delicious contributions we were able to cook up at camp because of your generosity- I figure if everyone I know donates $15 I’ll meet my goal in minutes!

I have a personal fundraising goal of upwards of $1000.00
