WishGivers, an organization working to help sick children of American heroes, is hosting a Camelot Cruise to raise money for a local fireman's son and Boston Children's Hospital.

The dinner cruise event will take place on the Honey Fritz, John F. Kennedy's presidential yacht, in Boston Harbor on Friday, August 2, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.

The Boston fireman's 2-year-old son has been diagnosed with leukemia, the same form that claimed the life of WishGiver's co-founder, PJ Schrantz's, son.

Schrantz, a New York City firefighter and 9/11 first responder, co-founded WishGivers after the passing of his son.
