Summer Games originally started as the "Bar Olympics"
with staff and patrons from the Stonewall and Candida's
participating in fun, athletic games at the Rainbow
Mountain Resort to raise funds for Lehigh Valley and
Pocono HIV/AIDS support services. Rapidly growing in
support, attendance,and fame the event was re-named
The Summer Games to reflect the greatly broadened focus
For 27 years good people like yourself have
sponsored teams and contributed to the success of FACT’s
fundraising event, the Summer Games. We invite you to
join in the fun and festivities by celebrating with
us at The Woods Campground in Lehighton. This year,
the event will be held Sunday, August 26, 2012. This
year’s theme is “Vegas at the Woods.”
Please give serious consideration to organizing a team
to participate in the competitive events. We challenge
you to sponsor a cheerleading squad to compete in the
cheerleading pageant. Do not forget to encourage your
friends, patrons, and others to come to the Summer Games
and support your team and FACT. There is plenty to see
and do on this fun filled day!
Team events will include a water relay, water inner
tube race, clothing race (it’s a real “drag”),
condom toss, orange pass, human wheelbarrow race, volley
ball, a pie eating contest, and a cross-country run.
Each team consists of eight members – three female,
three male, and two alternates (one male and female).
Teams are required to pay a $15.00 admission fee for
each team member which includes a Summer Games T-Shirt.
Please visit our website at www.factlv.org

Our friends will have fun things to do besides cheering
on their favorite team. There will be a dunk tank, a
limbo contest, performances from the Summer Games Cabaret,
live entertainment, a raffle for terrific prizes, a
“Chinese Auction”, and vendor service agencies.
