While no Pediatric Oncology Camps took place in person this summer, Camp Kids Are Kids Chicago pivoted with their first “The Camp Show Must Go On!” virtual program which was a huge success! Since we had to cancel all in person events, we couldn’t do our typical fundraisers either. Help us to continue to offer our families the camp experience they need with our first virtual raffle where you can win incredible prizes. The Making Virtual Dreams Come True drawing will happen on Thursday, October 22nd. The Cost for the Raffle Tickets is 1 for $150, 2 for $200, 5 tickets for $400, and 10 tickets for $750.
