Description

It's that time again! The 5th Annual Camp Twitch and Shout Benefit is upon us!

Camp Twitch and Shout is a weeklong camp in Georgia for kids with Tourette Syndrome, something I have suffered from my entire life. Tourette Syndrome is a neurological disorder that causes involuntary “tics”, ranging from physical to vocal. The ages of the kids range from 7 to 17 years old, and we average about 150 kids per year, and they come from all over the country. As you may know, summer camps cost money, and some families have a hard time affording these. The money we raise will go towards the Camp's Scholarship Program, which will help fund those families struggling to bring their kids.

Last year, at the 4th Annual Benefit, we were able to raise $6,000 dollars amongst 140 attendees! This was enough to sponsor roughly 7 kids for their full costs of flights and attendance to the camp. The goal this year is to have 150 people attend and break that $6,000!

The date is Saturday November 18th, 2017, from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM, at the Bocce Club at 2001 Point Breeze Avenue, Philadelphia PA 19145. Tickets will be $30. Buy them in advance, and you will be given a raffle ticket for a door prize! Tickets are also available at the door if you decide to come last minute. Your ticket will include all you can eat and drink, which includes draft beer, wine and soda. A cash bar will be available as well. There will be tickets for sale for raffles, which include sports tickets, gift cards and gift baskets, and a 50/50. There will also be Jell-O shots available for purchase.

I have had the privilege to attend this camp for 5 summers now. The things these kids accomplish during this week are far more important to them than what they experience at home, and you can help give them this experience. It is the only time these kids have the chance to be around others like them and get away from the physical and emotional stress Tourette Syndrome brings them.
