Quilts At The "Shoe" Auction 2004
Our 2004 event will again be held at The Huntington Club located within OSU Stadium. Quilts by local quilters and well-known fiber artists range in price from $50 and up. Surprise celebrity auctioneers will join Andy Geiger/OSU Athletic Director, Archie Griffin/Alumni Association Director, Katie Smith/former OSU basketball star and current Women's Basketball Assistant Coach, Ellen Tressel/wife of OSU Head Football Coach Jim Tressel, Dave Kaelin/WNCI-FM, and Mindy Drayer/WCMH. The mission of Kids 'n Kamp is to provide children who have been diagnosed with childhood cancer with unique programs and services that focus on their emotional, educational and social well being and enable them to engage in family recreational activities. Kids 'n Kamp, an independent non-profit organization, is devoted to the social, educational and emotional needs of children with cancer. Kids 'n Kamp is not a United Way agency and therefore must rely on the generosity of corporations and individuals to maintain their programs and services. Kids 'n Kamp began in 1982 when a handful of dedicated volunteers coordinated a weekend summer camp for children with cancer. Over the years the group has grown, offering programs throughout the year with a single goal in mind: helping children and their families, whenever and wherever that help is needed. Kids 'n Kamp offers a range of programs and services free of charge to children, teens and young adults throughout Ohio. Many of these children are undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments for their disease. Group members also include children in remission from cancer who offer hope and encouragement to newly diagnosed children.
