Bridgetown Invitational 2018-2019 Charity Partner: Camp KC 

Hi Everyone!

The Bridgetown Invitational Tournament is pleased to annouce the selection of our 2018-2019 charity partner:

Camp KC 

Camp KC is a program of Cascade AIDS Project (CAP). As a component of CAP’s year-round Kids Connection program, Camp KC is a great opportunity for children whose lives have been affected by HIV/AIDS to spend a full week together, making new memories, and building trusting and supportive relationships, while enjoying a fun camping experience.

We will be raising funds, awareness, and donations for this project all year and look forward to working with the team to help enrich the lives of the children the camp serves.
