The Disco Biscuits and MCP ask their fans for help.
The Disco Biscuits and the production company that runs their festival Camp Bisco, MCP Productions, are asking their fans to help Hurricane Irene relief for upstate New York by donating to disaster relief for the home of Camp Bisco, Schenectady County, NY.
We all know Hurricane Irene caused massive flooding and widespread damage to the Northeast. Many of us don’t know how damaging this storm truly was and how hard the areas around Indian Lookout Country Club were hit.
The Tropical storm blew through Schenectady County depositing hundreds of thousands of gallons of water into the area. This rapid influx of rainwater caused massive river flooding and caused several dams to give way. Thousands of homes were flooded, power was lost and work was disrupted. Many residents were forced to evacuate their homes and were unable to work. Now, even a full month later, the cleanup is still continuing.
The purpose of this fund is to help those hit hardest by this natural disaster. Schenectady County is raising money to aide in the cleanup efforts and to provide assistance to those who need it most.
We have decided to set up this fund because Camp Bisco has made this region its home for the last 6 years. We have grown to form a bond with the land and its people and we want to help in any way we can. MCP Presents and The Disco Biscuits will be making donations to the fund and, we hope that everyone who has attended a Camp Bisco in the past, and everyone who is planning to attend a Camp Bisco in the future, will help us reach our goal of $20,000, so that this region can be restored to its past beauty. All monies will be donated to the Schenectady County Emergency Management Services.
Anything you can do to help will be appreciated! No donation is ever too small. Everyone who donates will be recognized on the Camp Bisco Facebook page. Those who contribute $50 will be sent a Camp Bisco 10 Poster as a thank you. A $350 donation towards this fund will get you a ticket to next year’s event, $500 donations wiil be rewarded with a VIP ticket upgrade, and $1000 will result in a Platinum VIP ticket. Show your generosity and come back next year to enjoy the land you helped rebuild.
