Fundraiser for 'Camp Hope' Tonight at DeVere's

Posted Thursday, April 17th 2014 @ 6am  by KFBK News - Kitty O'Neal

Kids who have lost their parents can find a safe environment to grieve at a place called Camp Hope.

Tonight De Vere's Irish Pub downtown will hold a fundraiser to support the program.

Just showing up and paying the $30 bucks, or whatever you can afford, will help kids who are going through a really rough time.  

Michael Donovan is a counselor at Camp Hope.

"Our campers have a chance to be with other kids who have experienced a loss and know what that feels like. The death of a parent is traumatic experience in anybody's life, especially a child," he said. 

Camp Hope is in Livermore, but the fundraiser tonight is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at De Vere's Irish Pub on L street.
