Camp Sunshine Benefit Dinner at SNHU

A group of Southern New Hampshire University students is working to raise money for Camp Sunshine, a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

A benefit dinner will be held Friday, Dec. 5, in the university’s Hospitality Center. It will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by a silent auction of goods and services from local businesses. A dinner prepared by Southern New Hampshire University culinary students will be served at 7:30 p.m. The cost of the dinner is $40 per person; a table of 10 is $360.

Camp Sunshine, based in Casco, Maine, is one of the only programs in the nation that focuses on every member of an ill child’s family. The free camp serves children with cancer, kidney disease, lupus, organ transplants and other illnesses. More than 17,000 children and their families from around the world have visited the weeklong camp.

“Times are tough these days with the state of the economy, but we feel confident that the local community will come together to support this cause and send deserving families to camp,” said Mark DeFazio, the event organizer.
