PURDY, Mo. (August 29, 2005) — As a team of over 200 builders from the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” ABC television show worked late into the night to rebuild several buildings for Camp Barnabas, managers and crewmembers from the Red Lobster at 3559 Shepard of the Hills Expressway in Branson decided to make a midnight food run to the workers.

The building crew took a break to enjoy the restaurant’s world famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits, Maine lobster tails, New England clam chowder, grilled shrimp and wild rice pilaf.

“Each day the owners and camp directors at Camp Barnabas dedicate their time and effort to provide children who are afflicted by disease and terminal illnesses with an experience they’ll always remember,” said Randy Burton, general manager of the Branson Red Lobster. “We’re proud to have had the opportunity to help the ‘Extreme Makeover’ show make an impact on the Camp and our community.”

The Camp Barnabas episode is expected to appear on “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” in the fall. The Extreme Makeover show rebuilt the camp’s staff house, meeting room and the camp owner’s home.

Camp Barnabas is a not-for-profit summer camp for children who have been diagnosed with terminal illnesses, handicaps and diseases, including cancer, AIDS and cerebral palsy. Each summer, Camp Barnabas provides encouragement for hundreds of children. To learn more about the camp, please visit their web site at
