The Cosmopolitan Club lights up the night when it comes to children with diabetes. Cups and candles cover the area in and around Memorial Park Lake. It's the fourth annual "light up the night" fundraiser to help children with diabetes and their families go to Kids Kamp.
The camp is held outside of Custer and helps families learn how to cope with and manage diabetes.
The fundraiser lights the night with more than just luminaries. There is also a live band, food, drinks, and free blood sugar testing.
Gloria Gunn co coordinator of the event says that she wants everyone to have a good time, but overall getting the kids to camp is the most important thing. "And you just want a normal sort of life when you're a child. You want to be like everybody else and so this camp makes them feel like they're not alone. And that there's other kids dealing with this and how they are. They can talk with other children; find out that they're not the only ones," said Gunn.
Last year the cosmopolitan club was able to send around forty children and their families to the camp, fully funded.
