Sharkx basketball camp will be hosting a talent show fundraiser on Friday, Aug. 24 at the Monkland Community Centre to celebrate the end of the summer camp season. The event will feature performances by campers, as well as other community groups.
The show aims to bring together members of the local community to raise money and have fun. There will be a variety of acts, a Kung Fu performance from LB Martial Arts Studio and a hip-hop dance performance. The dance performance will include both campers and dancers from the Break City dance school.
Funds raised through the event will help fund the Sharkx basketball program, as well as education bursaries that will be given to students during the event. Sharkx will also donate money towards Camp Caravane, a summer camp for children with autism.
Camp Directory Lerry Williams emphasizes the role of local businesses in supporting these activities for children. Sponsors like Stelpro, Pizza Pizza, and Cafe 92 are among many businesses in the area that make it possible for the camp to provide a great experience for so many children.
The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m at the Monkland Community Centre, 4410 West Hill Ave. The cost is $10 for kids, $15 for adults and includes a meal.
