Camp Hermelin Raised Nearly $65,000

ORT celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Camp Hermelin fundraiser at the home of Doreen Hermelin in mid-September. More than 700 kids, parents and grandparents reconnected with camp friends and staff while enjoying a variety of activities run by 11 local camps and 10 activity-based businesses.

Event co-chairs Carole BenEzra, Melissa Feldman and Shayna Levine, along with the planning committee, raised nearly $65,000 to benefit at-risk ORT students.

Additionally, there were 13 raffle prizes of free and deeply discounted camp tuition, donated by the participating camps. The 14th raffle prize awarded the winner a $2,500 credit toward any 2019 summer experience or organized trip or extracurricular activity during the 2018-2019 school year.

The Suburban Collection served as the presenting sponsor. ORT’s 2019 Camp Hermelin event is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 8.
