Monday, October 03, 2011

Hundreds of deserving Bay Area young people will get the chance to go to summer camp thanks to an annual golf charity event. ABC7's Dan Ashley is the host and founder of Friends Of Camp Concord.

On Monday, there were 160 golfers, plus volunteers and other guests, came out to the Round Hill Country Club in Alamo to help raise money for the cause.

"You know, every child should have the chance at least once in their life to go to summer camp. What we do here at Friends Of Camp Concord is make sure that kids who might not have that opportunity, or be able to afford it, are able to go up to South Lake Tahoe and have a week-long summer camp experience that really can change their lives," said Ashley.

In the 16 years that Dan's been doing this, roughly 7,000 kids have been sent to South Lake Tahoe for camp.

If you'd like to donate to the charity, you can go to their website. http://www.friendsofcamp.com/
