ACE BURPEE AND VIRGIN RADIO SELLING LEMONADE FOR KIDS 

Sending kids to camp one cup at a time

When Ace Burpee said Virgin Radio was going to host a lemonade stand in support of the Manitoba Camping Association on July 29, it did not go unnoticed. Winnipeggers came from all over to visit with the on-air staff and buy a lemonade. It was a great wayfor many people to show the positive impact that camping had made on their lives.

The campaign also attracted young children who donated as much as $40 each in order to give another kid the chance to go camping and make some friends. The successful campaign may have created some extra traffic on Pembina Highway, but Virgin Radio was able to collect enough to take 10 kids off the waiting list for the Manitoba Camping Association on that beautiful day too.

Ace Burpee who worked at campsin his earlier years, understands the importance of sunshine and nature in a child’s life and truly believes that “every kid deserves to experience camp at least once”.
