(WTNH) -- Every summer kids between the ages of 5 and 17 gather for Camp Rising Sun, an overnight camp in Colebrook.
What makes this camp special, is the campers are kids dealing with cancer.
The camp goes for a week in August, from the 19th to the 24th.
On Wednesday, July 18, Camp Rising Sun will host their Kids Night Out fundraising event.
The benefit event will be held at the Owenego Inn, 40 Linden Ave, Branford, from 6:00 pm- 10:00 pm and features live music provided by Mean Carlene and Vivid, with dinner, a silent auction and raffle.
Bring a lawn chair, relax, and enjoy the summer while helping to send children with cancer to camp.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children (ages 3-15).
