SNHU to Host Black-Tie Dinner
For Camp Sunshine

Manchester, N.H. (March 16, 2006) – Students at Southern New Hampshire University will host a benefit dinner to raise money for Camp Sunshine on Thursday, April 6, at 5:30 p.m. in the School of Hospitality. Tickets are $50 per person; a table for 10 can be purchased for $475

Camp Sunshine of Casco, Maine, is a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. The camp has the distinction of being the only program in the nation whose mission is to address the impact of a life-threatening illness on every member of the immediately family – the ill child, the parents, and the siblings. Families whose children are diagnosed with diseases such as cancer, kidney disease, lupus, organ transplants and other illnesses also attend one of the weeklong camps.

“We set a mission for the dinner to raise money and awareness of Camp Sunshine, which is an incredible organization,” said Jessica Bourdeau, a senior at SNHU and a co-chair. “This student-run event, which we started planning for last fall is a great way to create awareness for a cause that means a lot to the entire campus community.”

The benefit includes a cocktail hour, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction. The auction with include goods and/or services from local companies and businesses. The dinner will be catered by SNHU’s Culinary Student Association.
