PCA 2009 Annual Golf Invitational
“Benefits Burned Kids”

The Pittsburgh Claims Association 2009 Annual Golf Invitational will donate a portion of the profits from this event to benefit a local summer camp for children that have suffered severe burns.

Summer Camp for burned children, held each summer at a local well known camp in Western Pennsylvania. The camp has been offered free of charge to all children who have been burn center patients. When kids are burned, life changes. During their hospital stay, kids must cope with pain and with separation from family, friends and school. Recovery is an ongoing process, and kids may feel that they are “different.” If kids have visible scars or wear pressure garments, they may feel that they don’t fit in with other kids.

At camp, children ages 7 to 17 meet to share personal stories and new experiences. In this supportive environment, kids are encouraged to meet new challenges and take positive risks that help boost their self-esteem. Adventures such as horseback riding or rope climbing help build confidence as well as strong bodies.

Camp is a place where kids’ scars and struggles do not limit their opportunities for friendship and laughter. The counselors ensure that every camper gets the most from the camp experience. Children are transported by bus to camp and back. Skilled medical staff is equipped for emergencies and are able to supervise dressing changes, pressure garments and scheduled medications.

Burn Center Summer Camp receives financial support from various local organizations and individuals. The event sells out every year and is staged at Churchill CC on Monday June 22nd. Sponsorships at this year’s invitational will help the Pittsburgh Claims Association make what we would like to be a considerable contribution to this year’s benefactor.

Thank You! Your support is needed to accomplish this goal.

Don't forget - The Samuel J Foundation's Fifth Annual “Sam’s Summer Splash” fundraiser
is coming up on June 27, 2009, at 6:30 pm at Scott Township Pool. Tickets are only $5 per person age 4 and up (children under 4 are free) or just $4 per person for groups of 10 or more (perfect for sports teams, scout troops or groups). Refreshments, including KFC, games for the kids and music by DJ Roy Smith are included in the price of admission. There will also be a 50/50 raffle and ticket auction (including Steeler tickets!).

Proceeds from this event will support Sam’s Snack Wagon, a snack cart program for parents and children on the inpatient oncology unit and outpatient hematology/oncology clinic at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Sam’s Snack Wagon was started as something tangible that could serve as a daily reminder for these families that someone is thinking about them, and that they are not alone. Many parents have said that when their children are discouraged about having to go to the hospital, reminding them of the snack cart lifts their spirits and encourages them
For Summer Splash tickets, to donate to Sam’s Snack Wagon, or for more information about the Samuel J Foundation, visit, or contact Kelly Johnson at (724)693-9901.

What the Butler Saw

Jerry Springer meets legitimate theatre type farce which blatantly attacks everything you probably ever believed in but somehow comes out alright in the end. Advertised as rather ribald by the PICT, less offensive than one would have imagined when it was originally run in the late sixties, by today’s standards it’s a bit tame, nevertheless controversial. It’s fast paced and you have to be quick to catch all of the humor.
Check out the entire review at
Actually bares seeing twice so that you can get all of the sublte and not so subtle comedy. It’s fast, frenetic and just a little ribald.
