Former soap star Vera Moore, now Founder and President of Vera Moore Cosmetics, joined Linda B. Shapiro and Natalia Saavedra last Wednesday, to bring special goodies to the campers at Camp Quintipet, a camp for children who have cancer and their siblings.
Their visit was also to see how funds can be raised to perpetuate this program. The Shelter Island camp opens its grounds for one week to these children every year. Currently there are 98 girls and 63 boys attending, between the ages of 6 and 20. After 24 years, the camp’s major supporter had to make a difficult decision to stop funding it. But those who have been involved are determined to keep it going.
Since the visit was on the night of Camp Quintipet’s annual formal dance, Moore and the kids set up her “Vera Moore Boutique” (complete with adorable paper signs) and she and her team helped transform all of the girls into princesses with her fabulous make-up line.
