DOLLARS 4 TIC SCHOLARS “GALS’ AFTERNOON OUT” SUMMER CAMP PAINT PARTY RAISED FUNDS FOR TOURETTE SYNDROME SUMMER CAMP ATTENDANCE
DELRAY BEACH, FL – Sunny paintings came to life on Sunday, May 24 at the first annual “Gals’ Afternoon Out” Summer Camp Paint Party held by non-profit organization The Kelsey B. Diamantis TS Scholarship Family Foundation, Inc., dba Dollars 4 Tic Scholars. A group of supporters gathered at Vino VanGogh paint studio in Delray Beach to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and to paint to raise money to help Dollars 4 Tic Scholars sponsor attendance fees for two children to attend a week-long summer camp for children with Tourette Syndrome.
“One of our missions is to help two children attend Camp Twitch and Shout, a wonderful summer camp for children with Tourette Syndrome which is held in Georgia in July,” said Co-Founder and President of Dollars 4 Tic Scholars Diane Diamantis. “We were happy to hold our paint party to help these children as well as to celebrate Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month, which is May 15 to June 15, 2015.”
Kelsey Diamantis, who has Tourette Syndrome and is vice-president and co-founder of Dollars 4 Tic Scholars, is also volunteer camp counselor at Camp Twitch and Shout. “We are so grateful for our friends and supporters who participated in this event,” she said. “I personally know what a difference it can make to a child to attend the camp and be surrounded by friends who deal with the same challenges. When the children get to camp, they experience acceptance and happiness. It is a great feeling to help two families who need help with the camp fees.”
Dollars 4 Tic Scholars, established in May of 2014, awards college scholarships to students with Tourette Syndrome as well as supporting Tourette Syndrome summer camp fees.
