Help make this summer Groovy and win an IPad 4!


Do you have an extra $25 just lying around gathering dust?  Put it toward a good cause and   be entered in a drawing to win an IPad 4!  Each summer Bonnie Hayhurst, Amanda Burchfiel and Kellie Dziemianzuk put together an amazing music/dance/art/drama experience for teens and adults with disabilities.  Andy has participated in this camp every year and he has a wonderful time.  Last year camp was made available at no charge to individuals with special needs due to the generous donations of people who believe that music/dance/art/drama should be accessible to all.  Won’t you be a part of this worthy cause?  Bonnie has given me permission to reproduce the camp announcement from her blog, The Groovy Garfoose,  in it’s entirety below.  Please follow the links to donate or contact Bonnie with any questions you may have.

Andy and I thank you in advance for helping to make this camp possible.  If you know or are an individual who could benefit from this camp don’t hesitate, sign up now!  Bonnie, Amanda and Kellie are therapists and special educators.  Camp is held at a convenient location in Mentor, Ohio, the last week of June.  Click over to the camp flyer for dates and times.

PS – did I mention that Bonnie is married to former Kent State Flash, major league pitcher (ret.), sports broadcaster and author Dirk Hayhurst?  Two up runners-up in the drawing will receive an autographed Dirk Hayhurst (the Garfoose!) baseball card AND an autographed copy of Dirk’s NY Times Best Selling book, Out of My League.  You won’t be able to put this book down!

Won’t you “Give Your Regards To Broadway”?

by BONNIE on FEBRUARY 1, 2013

Today it’s snowy and a balmy 26 degrees in Ohio; the perfect day to talk about the GG Summer camp! Yes, my collaborators, Amanda and Kellie and I, have been planning and scheming another GROOOVY camp for teens and adults with special needs and we are so happy to announce all the official details today!

Without further adieu, The GG is proud to sponsor the “Give Your Regards to Broadway” Camp: A music, dance, art and drama camp for teens and adults with special needs for a week full of fun that’s sure to warrant a standing ovation June 24, 28, 2013 from 3:00-5:30pm daily.  Click the camp flyer to get the full scoop or read the excerpt below to get a glimpse of the fun that’s in store:

Interested families and campers can learn more AND pre-register for camp by filling out the registration form here.

We are SO excited to offer the GYR2B camp to the special needs community that we hope to offer it tuition FREE!  Last Summer we were able to offer the Under The Sea camp tuition FREE with small $25 donations from readers like YOU! This year, our goal is to raise $2,000 by April 30, 2013.  Your financial support will not only help defer costs for families that have teens or adults with special needs but it will ensure that any family of a child with special needs can access this camp.  Now that’s a good feeling!  We believe that your donation will do so much good, that we want to reciprocate that feeling with the chance to win some amazing prizes!!!

For every $25 donation (or more!) that helps us meet our goal of $2,000 by April 30, 2013, donors will be entered to win one of three GROOOOVY prizes (contest rules apply*):

  • grand prize (1): the runners-up prizes PLUS a brand new iPad 4!

Yes, you read that right!  We are SO excited and passionate about providing FREE camps to special needs, The Garfoose and we are giving away an iPad 4!!!  We hope you will consider supporting the GG “Give Your Regards to Broadway” camp today and help us make an impact with teens and adults this Summer!  Thank you and keep it Groovy! =)
