Buy a ticket, help a kid: Camp Soaring Eagle fundraiser for children with serious illnesses

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

If you are dreaming of a trip to Europe, you might want to buy a ticket and help a kid with disabilities.

Camp Soaring Eagle is having an interesting fundraiser.

The camp is free for kids with serious illnesses.

"It gives you a chance to meet other people that  ave the same issues and the  same fears," said Charlize Zimbelman.

Zimbelman has diabetes, a disease the camp helps her cope with.

"I got to hold a tarantula for  the first time, and it broke my fear of spiders," she said.
 
It takes money to keep a year round camp running, but they are raising money with a Mercedes-Benz from Arrowhead Mercedes.  You will not win the car, but you can win a trip to Europe and drive a Mercedes while you are there.

"How many people get to tour the headquarters of Mercedes then they get to take a tour in a Mercedes for six days and five nights," said Paula Boca Bommarido with the camp.
 
The prize is worth $8,000; tickets are going for $100 a pop.

All the money goes to Camp Soaring Eagle. That makes Charlize very happy.
 
"I've made a ton of new friends that have diabetes like me," she said.
 
Charlize is looking forward to summer camp.

There are only 400 tickets your odds are pretty good.  If you are interested, you can buy them on their web site: www.campsoaringeagle.org
