Creating Lasting, Positive Change in the Lives of Children

Our family has spent the past seven years working closely with the YMCA. Our efforts have made it possible for many North Carolina children to benefit from the camp experience. Now we are focusing our efforts on the children of the Virgin Islands - working with officials to create merit-based scholarships for the island's children in need. Each charter enables us to sponsor a child for an amazing week at a YMCA Camp in North Carolina. Our hope is that a week at camp will have a positive effect that will last a lifetime. We are also happy to announce that Bella Vita is now supporting entertainer Michael Beans in his efforts to help Haiti. This year we helped raise and donate over $5,000 for his mission.
