The Sunrise Day Camp is soon having its “Bring The Sun: The 2011 Summer Fundraiser” on June 29th, 2011. This evening of enjoyment with a performance by the Kal Nwaneri Band will raise money to send children with cancer to camp.
The cost of sending only one child to Sunrise Day Camp is $6000 and Sunrise is funded exclusively through private donations, like those from Corey Ribotsky, and by special events of this sort. The evening fundraiser is being created by Chairman Scott Martin, Co-Chairperson Hana Ramat, Co-Sponsor Aron James, and Sponsoring-Associate Daniel Adler.
This beautiful and important event will take place at the Capitale, located at 130 Bowery Street in New York City.
The Sunrise Day Camp, which Corey Ribotsky and the NIR Group help to support, is an incredible program that helps children with cancer. In addition to their camp offerings, they have a program called Sunrise on Wheels which is a year-round outreach program for children and families in Outpatient Clinics.
The Sunrise Day Camp volunteers will come to the hospital with their tie-dye trunk at the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic at Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York. They are onsite every Monday and Friday morning and help children to get through the long process of dealing with the hospital process.
The day in the hospital can be a very tense and difficult one as they wait to see doctors, to get lab results back and to have check-ups. They bring in toys, games, puzzles and projects for the children. The trunk includes mind teasers like Mancala, group games, coloring books, crafts and so much more.
Mark your calendars for March 9 to help benefit Sunrise Day Camp. You are invited to a private shopping event in NYC. Situated at Bergdorf Goodman, next month you will be privy to champagne and hors d’oeuvres and the talents of personal shoppers on the premises while going on a private shop at the store. As well there will be a great raffle with prizes from top designers. So indulge a little, and, while you’re doing it, remember what benefit you will be giving to Sunrise Day Camp. Corey Ribotsky is a supporter of Sunrise Day Camp, the “only dedicated day camp in the nation for children with cancer.”
In very exciting news for Sunrise Day Camp, WABC-TV’s Eyewitness News recently launched a new feature segment called Heroes in the Community. The first hero that they picked was Arnie Perminger, the President & CEO of the Friedberg JCC and of Sunrise Day Camp.
The segment was first shown on Tuesday, September 1 and showed touching scenes with campers and counselors of Sunrise Day Camp, where Corey Ribotksy is a donor. The campers discuss how Arnie’s passion has changed their lives.
The Sunrise Day Camp is the only dedicated day camp in the country specifically created for children with cancer and their siblings. Children enjoy a new beginning free of charge as they form friendships, participate in camp activities and enjoy a chance to feel like regular kids.
On August 16, 2010, Sunrise Day Camp, supported by Corey Ribotsky and so many others, will host the Samuel Levine Memorial Golf Classic. Have fun at the golf classic, while knowing that you are supporting the Sunrise Day Camp with any funds you spend at the event. Join the camp, as well, to honor Paul Brensilber, Roddey Dowd Jr. and Jordan Ziegler on this special day.
In addition, Sunrise Day Camp has taken their journal green! Their virtual ad journal will be screened for the first time at the Golf Classic and viewed online throughout the year. Have fun while supporting a very worthy cause.

Sunrise Day Camp has been offering fun camps to kids from the ages of 3-16, suffering from cancer. As well, events it coordinates include those which invite family members and friends to share in the fun. This upcoming fundraising event will be a great way to have an enjoyable, mellow day out for everyone, and enable the kid with cancer to feel part of a regular fun day. That is often the focus of Sunrise Day Camp – to give kids with cancer the opportunity to be part of regular society and forget their troubles, even if just momentarily.
