Ocean City, MD – (July 12, 2021): The O.C. Recreation Boosters recently received a generous donation from The Bresler Family and The Robert I. Schattner Foundation (RIS). The $10,000 grant will provide Ocean City children with financial assistance and scholarships to the after-school program, Camp Horizon, Scamper Camp and the Halloween Spook-Out.
Sid Bresler, President and Chairman of RIS, requested that the O.C. Recreation Boosters make this a challenge grant. In the spirit of giving, RIS is asking residents and non-residents of Ocean City to match this grant with donations made to the O.C. Recreation Boosters.

The O.C. Recreation Boosters also organizes events and engages in fundraising activities to help to lower fees and offset costs for youth recreation programs in addition to providing scholarship opportunities for OCRP programs to those with financial need.”
