BENEFITING: SeriousFun Children's Network
EVENT DATE: Sep 26, 2015
The SeriousFun Children's Network is an international network of camps for children who suffer from life-limiting illnesses. For many children, it is one of their only ways to feel unhindered, have a typical camp experience, and raise a little hell. SeriousFun draws all its funds from donations so that the families of the children do not have to pay for their child's experience. Phi Kappa Tau has been raising funds for SeriousFun, our national philanthropy, for 20 years. SeriousFun was founded Kenyon grad and Phi Tau alum, Paul Newman. The Zeta Kappa chapter of Phi Kappa Tau is raising money for SeriousFun, with a goal of $1,949: Paul Newman's grad year from Kenyon. To bring the camp experience to campus, we are hosting a series of camp games called SeriousFun-a-Thon on 9/26 that encourages students to enjoy a throwback to childhood, recognize its value, and donate to the cause. However, we cannot meet our goal from just student donations. We need your help to bring the camp experience to the children for whom it is most valuable.
