Let (Summer and) the Good Times Roll! Camp Kesem UW-Madison Congrats to Give A Laugh Winners Huge congratulations to our campers Cougar and Platinum who won the Camp Kesem national’s “Give A Laugh” contest! These two beat out 53 other hysterical giggling videos to win a year’s supply of Giordano’s pizza. The contest’s purpose was to honor all moms and dads out there by giving them a laugh. And they sure did. Great work, Cougar and Platinum! CKUW 2013 Update We have less than two months left until camp!
