Camby Raising Money for SAND School
NBA star and Hartford native Marcus Camby and The CambyLand Foundation
will hold a fundraiser for the New SAND Elementary School in
Hartford at The Bar With No Name on Friday, August 28. Camby's
new reading club, "Rebound by Reading," will also be
unveiled at the event.
The CambyLand Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by
Camby, was established to provide support for the youth of Connecticut.
The New SAND Elementary School's low test scores on the Connecticut
Mastery Test encouraged the foundation to become more involve
with helping the students achieve better reading skills.
The event will begin with a corporate VIP All Star Party, which
will be held at The Civic Cafe on Trumbull Street from 8 pm until
9 pm. The guests will then be escorted to the party already in
swing at The Bar With No Name. Guests will have a chance to win
tickets to a New York Knicks game in Madison Square Garden. Tickets
to the event are available for $35. For tickets and other information
call the CambyLand Foundation at (860) 648-2871 or Debbie Rossitto
at the Civic Cafe at (860) 493-7412.
