Classic Party Rentals of Virginia had the honor of donating tables and linens to Camp Kesem at Virginia Commonwealth University’s “Make the Magic” event. Camp Kesem is a nationwide nonprofit that is driven by passionate college students who work year-round to support children through and beyond their parent’s cancer. There are 64 chapters of Camp Kesem at different colleges across the country. We had the pleasure of working with VCU’s chapter. The “Make the Magic” event is the group’s biggest annual fundraiser.

The group’s event included a dinner banquet, silent auction, paddle raise, live musical entertainment, and guest speakers featuring the stories of both families and counselors who have experienced the magic of Camp Kesem. This event raised over $10,000, which will send 20 kids to camp this summer.

CPR of VA is delighted that we got to learn about what a wonderful and charitable group Camp Kesem is, and that we got to participate in this very special event! Camp Kesem at VCU’s hope for this year is to raise $65,000 to send 65 kids in our community to a free week of camp this summer.
