A “Youth 4 Youth” fundraiser will be held at Dolphin Bookshop & Café on Sunday, April 29, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. to benefit Summer Together, a summer camp scholarship fund for Port Washington children.
Summer Together is a new community effort to help school-age children from families in need of economic assistance attend a local summer camp for one week. Participating groups include Long Island Together, The Community Synagogue Social Action Committee, Temple Beth Israel Social Action Committee, Reconstructionist Synagogue of the North Shore, Port Together, St. Peter of Alcantara Social Ministry and Our Lady of Fatima Outreach.
Performers are local youth who will be singing, dancing, and sharing other diverse talents. The program will feature soloists, Bach to Rock bands, a puzzle grandmaster, South Indian classical dance and so much more.
“Your donation of any amount will help us reach our goal of sending 50 local kids to one week of camp,” said event organizer Sonia Arora. “Summer child-care is a challenge for so many. This is a small step toward raising awareness and promoting better access for all children to fun and enriching summer activities.”
Camps participating include Bach to Rock, Berest Dance Center, Camp Invention, PYA/NY Baseball Academy, and Unlimited Sports Action.
The Dolphin Bookshop has generously offered its cafe space to host the event. Food, snacks, cold and hot drinks—and books—will be available for purchase.
