A fundraiser for a camp that helps kids and adults with special needs is moving closer to its goal. Radio station I-95 is in the middle of a two-day Capella-thon. It raises money for Camp CaPella in Dedham. They’ve been taking donations on the air since 6 a.m. Thursday and wrapped up at 5 p.m. They’ll do it all over again Friday. So far they’ve collected at least $3,000, but haven’t tallied the website donations. If they raise $12,500, a local couple, Steve and Peggy LaVerdiere, has offered to match that.To donate, you can call the station at 991-9713 or log on to www.I95Rocks.com. There’s also a Classic Drive and Charity Car Show set for Saturday, June 29th.I-95 Classic Drive is Saturday from 9-10 a.m., leaving from Maine Oxy in Brewer via Route 1A to NAPA Auto Parts on Route 1 in Ellsworth.
