Main Street, Kammy’s Kause to Host Largest Fundraiser in the World for 4p- Support
Kammy’s Kause to Host Largest Fundraiser in the World for 4p- Support on MAIN STREET in Fortville, Indiana
2019: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14th
Kammy’s Kause is an all-day music festival held on Main Street in Fortville, Indiana. It’s purpose is to raise funding and awareness for families affected who turn a negative into a positive on a daily basis. This year’s event includes: Kammy’s Ride (100-Mile Escorted Motorcycle Ride), KidZone, live art, food trucks, 14 local musicians/bands, high-end silent auKtion, merchandise, vendors, great people and much, much more. Kammy’s Kause, now in its 16th year, has raised over $400,000 for 4p- (also known as Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome). Proceeds will directly benefit the 501(c)(3) 4p- Support Group.
– Public Parking (FREE)
– Rain or Shine
Kammy’s Kause was founded by Jared Hiner, whose daughter Kamdyn was diagnosed with 4p- over 16 years ago. Following her diagnosis, Hiner joined the 4p- Support group. He immediately recognized they were in serious need of funding after learning their annual income was only $800. Hiner then organized the first-ever Kammy’s Kause and raised $1,000. What started as an afternoon with five local bands turned into what it is today, with hundreds of thousands of dollars going directly to 4p- Support.
The 16th annual Kammy’s Kause will take place on Main Street in Fortville, Indiana and will kick off at 11am with an awe-inspiring roar as we send off over 150 motorcyclists that will be riding for the Kause in the 11th annual Kammy’s Ride.
4p- is an extremely rare chromosome disorder which causes mild to severe mental and physical handicaps, organ failure, oral defensiveness, and developmental delays. Early intervention such as physical, occupational, and speech therapy have proven to be vital in the development of children with 4p-. There have been 600+ cases reported since its discovery in the 1960s, thirteen of which are known in Indiana, and one of which is Hiner’s daughter. With so few 4p- children and the lack of funding, new research and information is limited. 4p- is one of the 6,000-8,000 rare diseases that affect as many as 30 million people worldwide, 50% of which are children. While Kammy’s Kause directly supports the 4p- Support Group, the hope is to increase awareness about rare diseases in general.
