Wednesday June 12,the South Burlington Knights of Columbus presented a significant donation award of $44,490.79 to Camp Ta-Kum-Ta. The donation was the result of proceeds generated from the annual KOC Super Bingo fund-raising event that was held in April at the Sheraton Conference Center.
“As a fraternal service organization with a near-30-year history, we are delighted to lend our support to the outstanding work that Camp Ta-Kum-Ta does with children whose lives have been touched by cancer,” said Donald Sutton from the Knights of Columbus.
This year’s donation will finance the construction of an ecumenical chapel for use by all campers, their families and Camp Ta-Kum-Ta staff.
For more than two decades Camp Ta-Kum-Ta has provided a safe, loving place where children from Vermont and New York who have, or have had, cancer can play, swim, share, and heal. Camp Ta-Kum-Ta is where kids go to reclaim a childhood robbed by cancer.
The South Burlington Knights of Columbus Council # 7525 are part of St. John Vianney Parish and have made Camp Ta Kum Ta the main focus of their charitable giving to the local community for over a quarter century.
