A Free Urban Camp for
Kids Touched by Cancer
Matching Gift Challenge
Camp H-Town’s Celebrity Chef’s Against Cancer event scheduled for May 7th at the Four Seasons Hotel Houston has been postponed due to the Corona Virus crisis. We are disappointed not only because this is a great event put on by the talented and generous Celebrity Chefs of Houston, but it was also the Camp’s primary fundraiser.
However, Camp H-Town is thrilled to announce that the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation has stepped forward with a matching gift challenge to inspire individuals to help Camp H-Town at this critical time. The Toulmin Foundation will match every dollar contributed to Camp H-Town up to $50,000 starting today.
“We are honored and grateful to receive this vital support for our organization that provides an urban camp for kids battling cancer.” says Tom Segesta, President of Camp H-Town. “The Toulmin Foundation’s leadership ensures that Camp H-Town can come out of this crisis ready to continue our mission of providing kids ages 8-14 who are living with cancer a fun and safe camp setting at no financial cost to the campers’ families.”
Mrs. Toulmin once said, “I have always had a soft heart, maybe too soft at times, I don’t like to see people hurting or in distress. That is exactly why I became a nurse.” Virginia was a devoted healthcare professional, who loved children and dedicated her life to helping others. She would have adored a camp like Camp H-Town and would only want to help sustain it during this extraordinary time. Therefore, the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation has announced a $50,000 matching grant to Camp H-Town to help sustain its general operations and continue to provide support for children throughout this unprecedented time. Donations to the Camp will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $50,000.
