The Concordville-Chadds Ford Rotary is in the process of delivering monies raised during last June’s Twisted Vintner event.
Twisted Vintner raised $50,000 last year. On Wednesday, Feb. 22, the group handed out $5,000 to Camp Bournelyf.
Jeff Seagraves, president of Camp Bournelyf’s Board of Directors, said the Westtown Township camp began as a summer camp for special needs people between the ages of 8 and 25. However, he said it’s grown beyond that.
“It’s no longer just a summer camp,’ he said. “We provide opportunities for campers to get together monthly.”
Teddy Diskin, 18, from West Goshen, is a camper at Bournelyf and he accepted the check from Rotary President Bill Bertolet.
Next week, the service organization will be presenting AI Dupont Institute with a $2,500 check from money raised at Twisted Vintner.
Former Rotary President Dominic Cappelli said the group already donated $15,000 worth of strength training equipment to the Veteran’s Hospital for veterans in wheel chairs.
Also during the lunch meeting, Rotary recognized Garnet Valley High School juniors Patrick Bradley and Natalie Boettger as students of the month for February.
