Come support the women of Kappa Kappa Gamma at the Homecoming football game on October 22, 2005! We plan to sell balloons at the game with all proceeds to benefit the National Kidney Foundation and Kappa Kidney Camp.

Balloons are $1 each! There will be many prizes up for grabs from local retailers and restaurants! There also will be a grand prize drawing for a mini chopper bike from Full Throttle Racing/Vicious Cycles valued at $700! Tickets for this drawing will be $1 for one or $5 for six.

Kappa Kidney Camp is for children of ages 8 to 18 years who are either on dialysis or who have had a kidney transplant. The camp offers children a unique opportunity to meet others like themselves and to develop lasting friendships bonded by their shared experiences of living with a life-threatening disease. There is no charge for campers to attend, thanks to generous contributions from Ohio Kappa Kappa Gamma chapters.
