Lions Camp Badger is sponsoring a concert by “Flame the Band” on Feb. 1, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at Tioga Downs Casino Resort, located on River Road in Nichols, N.Y. This exciting event will be held in the Tioga Downs Hotel ballroom.
Come see for yourself that individuals with special needs hold unlimited potential when given the opportunities and support necessary to succeed. They are proud to offer “Flame”, a band ensemble where all of the members have disabilities, but they do not let their challenges define them. Flame has performed internationally, and they are truly excited to bring their talents to our community.

This event will open with talented camper Claire Costello performing a high-energy piece from the musical, “Hamilton”. During the concert, a Silent Auction will also be held, featuring baskets and items in all price ranges. Proceeds will go toward supporting Lions Camp Badger’s camp programs, and cash, check, or credit cards will be accepted. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about Lions Camp Badger and see what they have to offer.
Flame is guaranteed to entertain, inspire, and energize all who attend. This afternoon of entertainment, dancing, and social time promises to be fun-filled, family friendly, and enjoyable for all.
