Part of the ticket sales will go to benefit Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. Last year’s Bradstock raised $10,000 for the camp, $2,000 of which was donated in the memory of Kevin “K.C.” Cowan, who was the brother-in-law of Bridget Costello, Director, Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. The money will be used to purchase musical instruments for the campers, pay for a musical therapist and host live musical performances for the campers.
Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is a resident summer camp serving children and young adults ages 6-21 with both physical and developmental special needs. Its mission is to help these children to achieve equality, dignity, and maximum independence through a safe and quality program of camping, recreation, and education. Throughout the program, campers participate in many activities, such as arts and crafts, talent shows, cook-outs, swimming and boating.
