[Columbus, OH – June 16th, 2015] Local charities Kids ‘n Kamp and Moodley Foundation are joining forces this summer to raise money and awareness of programs that help families who are affected by pediatric cancer. Their collaboration includes a digital fundraising drive that will finance the Dinner on 12 Program – a monthly pizza party for the families in the cancer unit of Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
“Our goal is to raise at least $1,200 so that we may fund this program for the rest of the year! And the exciting news is, thanks to the Moodley Foundation, we will be able to provide tablets, pre-loaded with Skype, to Nationwide Children’s Hospital so families can stay connected while their child is receiving treatment,” says Beverly Circone, Founder and Executive Director of Kids ‘n Kamp.
The premise of the Dinner on 12 Program is simple: deliver good eats and happy smiles to the one place both are most hard to come by – the cancer unit of Nationwide Children’s Hospital. This monthly event is hosted by Kids ‘n Kamp and sponsored by Papa John’s Pizza, providing a similar type of pizza party experience in the hospital that kids on the outside know and love.
