A reproduction-assistance agency recently made a donation that would allow a child of same-sex parents to attend a local summer camp, and another contributor has since stepped forward with a donor challenge.
Reproductive Medicine Associates of Philadelphia donated $394 to Mountain Meadow, which operates the annual summer camp for kids of LGBT parents, and a supporter of the agency has pledged $500 if another donor steps forward to donate a $394 “campership.”
Contact executive director Steve Duffy at email@example.com for more information on the donor challenge.
There will be a public tour of the camp from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Aug. 14. Camp will be in session from Aug. 8-21 in Southern New Jersey.
Summer-themed concert contest
The Mann Center for the Performing Arts will hosts its first annual LGBT Lawn Party Extravaganza at 6 p.m. Aug. 4, prior to the Rufus Wainwright concert at 7:30 p.m. at the venue, 5201 Parkside Ave. in Fairmount Park.
Celebrity judges will look for the best-looking picnic setting, and guests can either use a theme or decorate the setting to their own liking. The only beverage that can be brought in is bottled water.
The grand-prize winner will be awarded a one-night stay at The Loews Hotel in Philadelphia and dinner for two at Solefood, including gratuity and parking.
The first runner-up will receive two tickets to the Tony Bennett concert, Aug. 28 at The Mann, and the second-runner up will be awarded two tickets to Mark Nadler and the New York Pops, Sept. 22 at The Mann.
Only guests with tickets for the Wainwright show are considered eligible.
