June 29, 2010 - Summer Camp Press Conference

Over 50 campers joined Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz on the steps of Borough Hall for an afternoon press conference. After announcing that Camp Brooklyn Fund will be sending 400 Brooklyn kids to camp we were all treated to an original song performed by two of the campers. Brooklyn Cyclones mascot, Sandy The Seagull, made a special appearance to meet the kids and hand out tickets to a 2010 Brooklyn Cyclones baseball game. We thank the Cyclones for making Camp Brooklyn the beneficiary of their YOUINFORM Jersey Design Contest. Special thanks to BJ Duffy, Brooklyn Market President, Capital One Bank for their major support and to Applebee's for providing the Applebee's Grab 'n Go Box Lunch for our participating kids and their families and caregivers. We were also proud to welcome Charley Ryan, Founder of Brooklyn Bowl as our newest partner.
