Camp For A Cause – And The Winners Are…

Monday – November 19, 2012

Over the weekend, DJ Bandcamp held his FIRST charity event under “Camp For A Cause” for Breast Cancer Awareness in his hometown of Youngstown, OH at The B&O Station Banquet Hall. For the event, Bandcamp and his team had been selling raffle tickets and garnering sponsors to raise funds to donate back to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. With the help of several local businesses, Bandcamp was able to give away nearly 50 items through a silent auction. They also received signed items from The Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Washington Redskins, Cincinnati Bengals, and Denver Broncos for a live auction. Bandcamp would like to extend a special thank you to “Knight Line Signature Apparel” for donating over 50 “Camp For A Cause” T-shirts to serve as a memento for those who came out to support the event and Edible Arrangements for catering such a great cause.

Since the raffle tickets were sold all over country, the winning ticket numbers will be posted right here on djbandcamp.com/camp-for-a-cause. Winning ticket holders will have 3 weeks to present their winning ticket in order to claim their prize. After 3 weeks, if prize goes unclaimed, another drawing will be held with the remaining tickets. Those winners will then be announced on the website and also have 3 weeks to claim their prize. After the second round of drawing, if prizes go unclaimed, they will remain unclaimed.

All winners, email campforacause@djbandcamp.com to claim your prize!

Camp For A Cause: Event Details
Being from the city of Youngstown, it is only right to kick off my first charity event in my hometown. We will be holding our culminating event on November 17, 2012 at The B&O Banquet Hall in the city of Youngstown, OH from 6-8 pm. This event will be FREE to the public as we recognize breast cancer survivors and announce our winners of the “Camp For A Cause” raffle. We asked that everyone come dressed in “After-5” attire and celebrate a day of service as we unite for such a special cause. A representative from the National Breast Cancer Foundation will be present, as well as many other partners involved in our cause.

Camp For A Cause: Special Thanks
We would like to thank the City of Youngstown, Mayor Chuck Sammarone, and Belleria Pizza for being official sponsors for such a great cause. The Covelli Centre for their backing and support, and everyone contributing to make this event a huge success.

Camp For a Cause – Breast Cancer Awareness

Click Image to Donate

“Camp For a Cause” was started in 2012 by an up and coming DJ from Youngstown, OH named DJ Bandcamp. Its design is to aid both public and private charities, or other philanthropic groups, with their many needs as seen fit by both parties. As a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. and a former high school teacher, giving back and raising awareness are far from unchartered waters for this rising DJ. Now that he is garnering the attention of the world as the tour DJ for The BET Music Matters Tour featuring Interscope Records’ rising star Kendrick Lamar and Warner Brothers Maybach Music Group’s Stalley, he wants to be a positive example for all.

To kick off these efforts, Bandcamp has teamed up with the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month organization to raise funds for breast cancer research. Through the month of October, DJ Bandcamp and his team will be collecting donations from patrons all over the world to benefit the cause. Once the month comes to an end, Bandcamp will be holding a special event in his hometown of Youngstown, OH to honor breast cancer survivors and to cut the check for the proceeds made in honor of Breast Cancer Research.

Determined to capitalize and give back as much as possible to this ongoing charity, we are still searching for corporate sponsorships for “Camp For a Cause.”

Camp For a Cause – VLT Academy

On October 5, 2012, DJ Bandcamp took his first steps towards giving back to the community in an initiative entitled, “Camp For a Cause!” He visited VLT Academy, where he taught high school Chemistry for the past two years, and spoke to grades five through twelve about the importance of education and following your dreams. “It was an awesome experience!” Bandcamp says. “I wish I could do things like this everyday!”

Below are some pictures from the event!
