The League for People with Disabilities & the Rotary Club of Baltimore City Present “Milestones”, the Annual Awards and Advocacy Dinner to Celebrate 75 Years of Camp Greentop and 100 Years of the Rotary Club of Baltimore City

The League for People with Disabilities in coordination with The Rotary Club of Baltimore City is hosting the 2012 Annual Awards & Advocacy Dinner at the American Visionary Art Museum on Saturday, May 19th from 5 – 9 p.m.

The evening will celebrate milestones for both organizations:

  • The League celebrates 75 years of Camp Greentop, which was founded in 1937.

    ~ The mission of Camp Greentop is to provide joyful, life-changing experiences in a safe environment and build meaningful relationships in the lives of youth and adults.
    ~ Camp Greentop was one of the first residential summer camps for children and adults with disabilities in Maryland.
    ~ In 1937, 82% of campers had Polio, in 1964, 66% had Cerebral Palsy, and in 2011, about 65% of youth camper’s had an Autism diagnosis.

 

  • The Rotary Club of Baltimore celebrates its centennial anniversary, which was founded in 1912.
    ~ The Rotary Club’s International mission is to provide services to     others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.
    ~ Camp Greentop’s future was threatened when the US government wanted to extend their use of the campsite after WWII, during which the Rotary Club advocated on behalf of The League, at which point Camp Greentop was returned to the non-profit organization.

 

The evening will consist of a silent auction over during the cocktail reception, a live performance by Three of a Kind, in addition to honoring three individuals who have made a significant impact on The League and the community.
