Community pulls together to celebrate the life of Kamil Burrows

Thursday April 4, 2013

BRATTLEBORO -- The tragic, early death of a 3-year-old Brattleboro child, Kamil Jumaane Nashoba Rune Middleton Burrows, brings our community together once again. To help support the family through this painful time, a fundraiser and a celebration of life is planned for Friday, April 12, at 5 p.m., at the Vermont Jazz Center in the Cotton Mill. This event will include celebration of all things enjoyed by Kamil: music, dancing, food and friends.

To honor Kamil, the evening will begin with one of Kamil’s most loved activities, drumming, led by Jason Grimes with many talented musicians to follow -- Red Heart the Ticker, Luz Elena and Rebirth and more. There will be opportunities for sharing for those that are inclined.

Entrance is by suggested donation of $10 per person, or $25 for a family. Snacks will be available, but feel free to bring a dish to share. No alcoholic beverages are permitted. A silent auction will offer another chance to contribute to this family’s healing. Bidding will take place from 5 to 9 p.m., and will feature handmade items from local artisans in addition to gift certificates from local shops and restaurants. Donations will help Ingrid and Ade Burrows cover medical bills and travel expenses.
