Hello CulinaryCorps Friends and Supporters,
The excitement is building as we head into the final weeks before our trip to Camp Sunshine. We cannot wait to return to launch our World of Flavors cooking program, and we’re diligently checking off our to-do list:
- Have we assembled an incredible team of chef-volunteers chosen from a highly competitive pool of applicants? You bet!
- Did we design an informative, engaging and fun cooking curriculum that will take the campers and their families on a culinary journey around the globe? Heck yea!
- Do we have an amazing group of campers, parents, siblings and volunteers lined up to cook with us during Camp Sunshine’s July 5th-11th oncology/hematology session. Check and Check!
- Do we have all the necessary ingredients and equipment? Of course we….uh, wait…we actually don’t.
$2,400 in 24 days: That’s about how much our ingredient and equipment budget will run and how many days left until we land on the shores of Lake Sebago.
Any amount you can contribute to help us meet this goal is win for our program. Your donation will allow our campers to drape thick slices of fresh mozzarella onto handmade pizzas or roll sheets of shiny nori into colorful veggie sushi. More importantly, your contribution is sure to put many smiles on many faces. And in a world full of hospital visits and doctor’s advisories, those smiles may just be worth their weight in caviar.
Thank you for your donation!
