Good Morning Café in Ballston Spa invites everyone
for breakfast or lunch this weekend, May 3-5. A percentage of the sales from
all three days will be used to fund camp scholarships to send two Capital
Region kids to Diabetes Camp Aspire near Rochester.
In addition, Good Morning will be launching the retail sale of its homemade
granola. For all of 2013, 5 cents from every granola sale, both from the menu and
retail, will be allocated to The Good Health Fund at www.goodmorningbreakfast.com
The Good Health Fund for 2013 supports diabetes education and programs.
The weekend fundraiser is being spearheaded by 16-year-old
Adam Kaddo Marino, who has been living with diabetes for six years. His
experience at Camp Aspire
provides a safe, medically staffed respite for the families of Type 1
diabetics. Families can relax for an entire week knowing that their child
is in good hands.
Going to diabetes
camp gave Marino a reprieve from feeling different. At camp, there is a
complete contrast of what normally happens in the world. The program staff
actually gets teased for not being diabetic.
Marino now wants to help other kids with Type 1
diabetes benefit from the weeklong camp adventure by promoting this fundraising
weekend at Good Morning. Marino and his family will be present for much of the
weekend. His dad, Clem, will be performing acoustic music Friday and
Sunday. Live music will be provided all three days. Check out Good
Morning’s Facebook page for times and performers: www.facebook.com/GoodMorningCafeLLC
Plus, Friday between 6
p.m. and 9 p.m., Good
Morning will be hosting its debut Ballston Spa First Friday event. Local artists
will be displaying their original artwork. Ugandan arts and crafts will be sold
as a fundraiser. Food and live music will be available. It will be a good
evening to check out Good Morning.
