Last year, Bret Michaels announced on stage at the Benton Franklin Fair & Rodeo he would be sending to local children to diabetes camp. The time has come!

Two local kids will enjoy a week at Camp Sealth on Vashon Island in August where they will get to meet other diabetic children their age and learn how to live with and manage their diabetes.

As a diabetic himself, and the Tri-Cities being a special place to Bret, he felt it was important to give back to our community. Thank you Bret! Winners will be announced June 5.

The COO of Michaels Entertainment Group is from Kennewick.
