Where do the funds raised from Pelicanpalooza go?
100% of the proceeds raised in conjunction with Pelicanpalooza are distributed to the Louisiana Pulmonary Disease Camp, Inc. This is the non-profit organization which has joined with the LA Lions Camp to host Camp Pelican. Camp Pelican is a joint venture between the Louisiana Pulmonary Disease Camp, Incorporated and the Louisiana Lions League for Crippled Children. It is a week-long overnight resident camp for children with pulmonary disorders-such as but not limited to severe asthma, cystic fibrosis, tracheotomy and ventilator assisted children. These children would not be able to attend regular summer camp programs due to their extensive medical needs.
