Van Dijk family hosts fundraiser for burn survivors

(Lander, Wyo.) - Friday, November 13, 2015 would have been Zephan van Dijk's 6th birthday. Zephan passed away, along with his brother Noah, in a tragic house fire in July of 2014. The Van Dijks knew they wanted to do something special, positive and uplifting on this day. To honor Zephy, the Van Dijks held a Chili Cookoff Fundraiser to raise money for children who have survived a fire through the University of Utah Burn Camp Project.

Fluffy Buffalo entertained us with live music, there was face-painting for the kids, and of course the 16 pots of chili were gobbled up within a few hours. Monies raised from the Chili Cook-off Fundraiser will be donated to children who have survived a fire so that they can participate in the rewarding Burn Camp.
