Storm Front was donated to the McLean County Easter Seals to be auctioned at their annual fine art auction. I am pleased to announce it was auctioned for $275. The money raised at this event helps fund Timber Pointe Outdoor Center.
Timber Pointe Outdoor Center is the premier resource in the state of Illinois, providing specialized and inclusive camping and respite programming for individuals with disabilities or special needs and their families in a safe, accessible and beautiful environment. Owned and operated by Easter Seals, Peoria and Bloomington, IL.
Timber Pointe offers special needs and inclusive camp sessions for children and adults ages 6 and up. Campers participate in traditional camp activities such as swimming, fishing, boating, arts & crafts, target sports, music, and horseback riding. It is an experience of outdoor life for kids whose health issues make these activities often seem impossible. It is a chance for campers to develop independence and confidence. There were six week long Easter Seals sessions this summer, including camps for adults with disabilities, youth/young adults with physical disabilities, youth/young adults with developmental disabilities, and youth with ADD/ADHD. In addition, they offer weekend respite camps during the school year.
I encourage others to donate their time, talent, and resources to the charity their choice.
