The public is invited to paint a summer dandelion to help send children with Tourette Syndrome to Summer Camp. The Kelsey B. Diamantis TS Scholarship Family Foundation, Inc., dba Dollars 4 Tic Scholars, a local non-profit organization that supports college students and youth with Tourette Syndrome, has scheduled its 5th Annual Summer Camp Paint Party Fundraiser on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at 1:45 pm at Boca Uptown Art, Shoppes at Village Pointe, 6018 SW 18th St., Suite C4-C5, Boca Raton, FL 33433.
The fifth annual event is held in honor of Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month which is May 15 to June 15, 2019. A percentage of the attendance fee will be donated toward attendance sponsorships for two children ages 6 to 17 to attend summer camp for children with Tourette Syndrome. “Summer Camp can help a kid with Tourettes feel included and not so alone,” said Kelsey Diamantis, Co-founder of Dollars 4 Tic Scholars, who has Tourette Syndrome. “These children look forward to going to camp every summer as a time they can gain confidence and have fun. We hope to have a large group of painters this year and are very excited about the dandelion painting as a symbol of summer.”
Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door, and include snacks, beverages, door prizes and the attendee’s original summer dandelion painting.
