After word spread that the Kansas Jaycees Cerebral Palsy
Foundation Ranch would be sold, supporters rallied in recent days
to save it. KSNW-TV reports they raised $12,000 by Monday toward a goal of $65,000.
The ranch opened in 1964 as a joint venture of the Kansas Jaycees and the Cerebral Palsy Research Foundation. It occupies 147 acres near El Dorado (dor-AY'-doh) in Butler County.
The Jaycees supported the ranch with $100,000 a year until a
decade ago, when funding began to dwindle. The camp was to be
auctioned Aug. 27.
About 12,000 people have camped at the ranch over the years.
