BETHANY, W.Va. – Bethany College's Phi Kappa Tau fraternity will hold a spaghetti dinner on Sunday, April 9 from 5 to 9 p.m. at Bethany Memorial Church. The cost for the dinner is $6 for adults and $4 for children. All proceeds from the dinner will benefit the Hole in the Wall Camps, Phi Kappa Tau's national philanthropy.
The Hole in the Wall Camps, started by actor and prominent brother Paul Newman, were created to give children with terminal illnesses the opportunity to experience a week at summer camp. Children who qualify for these camps experience an expense-free week of camp which would cost approximately $1,000 per child.
The camps exist in five locations around the United States including Connecticut, Florida, New York, North Carolina and California. Five other camps exist internationally in Ireland, Israel, England, France and Africa.
Several times a year, Bethany's Phi Kappa Tau Chapter sends brothers, associate members and friends to Camp Boggy Creek near Orlando, Fla. Volunteering at the camp affords the brothers a life-changing experience and to see first-hand how the money they raise throughout the year works for these children.
The brothers are trying to increase their annual donation from $3,000 to at least $5,000 this year.
