Irion Books and Charles G. Irion Support Global Initiative to Help Children with Disabilities Through K2 Adventures Foundation

During the Foundation’s May 14 fundraiser, guests can bid on two opportunities to be named as a character in the final novel in the Summit Murder Mystery Series.

Paradise Valley, AZ, May 12, 2011 --( Publisher, author and long-time philanthropist, Charles G. Irion continues his charitable giving as a sponsor of the K2 Adventures Foundation “Summer in the City Fashion Show” to be held on May 14th at the Montelucia Resort in Paradise Valley, Arizona.

In addition to serving on the event’s Planning Committee, Irion is donating two chances to be a character in the final novel in the Summit Murder Mystery Series, “Murder on Kilimanjaro” by Irion and Ronald J. Watkins. Irion says, “It’s a shot at purchasing immortality while helping children in need.”

Through a partnership with Project C.U.R.E., K2 Adventures will be sponsoring and transporting medical containers filled with medical supplies and equipment to Tanzania during its annual hiking trip to summit Kilimanjaro. Fashion Show participants will be given an opportunity to purchase these medical containers at a cost of $150 (but with a true value of $2000-2500) each to donate to the Mwereni Integrated School for the Blind and hospitals in Tanzania.

While in Tanzania, K2 Adventures also provides four full days of community service to the Mwereni School visiting with the students, filling the medical facility with supplies, and repainting and repairing the different buildings on property. This year through the generous donation of the Mendez family in Scottsdale, K2 Adventures will build a new $50,000 medical facility for the Mwereni School to offer medical care and treatment for the students.

Irion is participating in the Kilimanjaro expedition and health mission in Tanzania.

K2 Adventures Foundation is a 501 c (3) organization, which raises funds for other non-profit organizations with a particular focus on those serving the needs of children with disabilities. Beneficiaries of this event include Hacienda Healthcare serving children and adults with long-term disabilities in Phoenix and Mwereni Integrated School for the Blind in Tanzania, Africa.
