Transcript DANCE-A-THON UH's Annual Dance-A-Thon and Casino Night raised almost $8,000 to benefit Camp Cougar this summer. Camp Cougar is a summer camp for mentally retarded children. The children stay in campus dormitories during the first three weeks in June and utilize UH facilities for various kinds of activities. The summer camp is the first of its kind in the nation. It was developed after UH sponsored the Texas Special Olympics, a statewide track and swimming competition for the mentally retarded, in May of 1973. Funds from the Dance-A-Thon and Casino Night go to provide scholarships and grants for 50-60 percent of Camp Cougar participants. This year, fund-raising efforts at the two campus events fell short of the goal of $10,000. About 1,000 students danced in the Dance-A-Thon to music provided by the "Family" and "Southern" bands and by KUHF stereo radio, a station with disco, country-western, soul and rock music. Twelve students danced 25 hours in an endurance effort that earned them special recognition in the Camp Cougar benefit. With a minimum pledge of $1 per hour, UH participants helped defray the $80 cost of tuition for Camp Cougar. Casino Night, which raised about $4,000 in one night of enjoyment and "gambling in the dorms"gave UH students a chance to join with others in Las Vegas style roulette, poker, craps and other chance games. Finishing the night with the biggest bank rolls of Casino Money netted various students with prizes including an exclusive wining and dining experience in Dallas. 48
