SAMBULANCE Partners With Local Water Park to Host Nautical Fundraiser

WEST BERLIN, NJ--(Marketwired - May 04, 2016) - The New Jersey-based SAMBULANCE program, a 501 (c)3 non-profit with a mission to foster safety education within the special needs community, is partnering with Sahara Sam's Oasis Indoor and Outdoor Water park for a summer gala. The event, Set Sail with SAMBULANCE, will take place Saturday, June 4th from 7:00 - 11:00 PM at the water park.

Tickets to the Set Sail with SAMBULANCE event are available to the public and include an evening of live music, a seafood buffet, an auction and access to the indoor and outdoor water park at Sahara Sam's. All proceeds from the nautical-themed event will go to the SAMBULANCE.

"This event is both exciting and extremely important for our program," said Annie Peters, Executive Director of the SAMBULANCE. "As the program grows geographically, and we reach more and more children with special needs, our expenses go up. This event is paramount in allowing us to continue offering free programming to students that really need it."

In 2015 the SAMBULANCE reached 22,895 students with special needs throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The program offers free safety training to help familiarize students with emergency vehicles, 9-1-1 procedures and first aid. In addition to traveling to schools and organizations with a full-sized ambulance, Peters also coordinates and organizes exclusive events at Sahara Sam's Oasis and Diggerland USA for the special needs community.

"Partnering with Annie and the SAMBULANCE to host this event is exciting for us," said Ilya Girlya, CEO of Sahara Sam's. "We've been hosting exclusive special needs nights at our park since 2010 so offering our facility for this gala is a natural fit."

SAMBULANCE also partners with Diggerland USA to host special needs events and has an ongoing partnership with Nemours DuPont Pediatrics in Voorhees, who is providing support for the June 4th fundraiser. Additionally, a number of local and national companies have donated over $5,000 in raffle items for the Anchor's Up Auction.
