Send Keely to Interlochen Art Camp

Keely is a 7th grade student at the Carthage Middle School. Keely is a very gifted and talented artist, and was recently accepted to the Interlochen Summer Art Camp in Interlochen, Michigan. Out of thousands of applications, from over 50 countries, Keely was accepted into the Advanced Drawing and Painting group which required a portfolio to be sent in order for her to be considered. The cost for this 3 week program is $4840. After receiving 2 separate scholarships from Interlochen, we still need to raise $3090.
