Summer Camp Auction (Occurs every March/April)

To send thousands of underprivileged children from Ukraine & other East European countries to summer camps.

Children from orphanages, foster homes, street kids, gypsy villages; children with special needs and those from desperately poor families.

From 2010-2016 over 50,000 children have attended summer camps thanks to the generosity of people attending our AUCTIONS!
Since our first Spring Summer Camp Auction in 2003, people like YOU have helped us raise over $1,000,000 – all used for sending underprivileged children to camps in Eastern Europe.
