Campground Owners of New York raising funds for Camp Good Days and Special Times
June 28, 2013
Pittsford, New York – Campground Owners of New York (CONY), a trade association of privately owned campgrounds in New York State, announces it is kicking off a second year of fundraising to benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times, a New York State-based organization providing camping experiences to children with cancer.
CONY-affiliated campgrounds and RV Parks across New York are participating in this fundraiser. All proceeds raised by CONY member parks are donated directly to Camp Good Days and Special Times during ceremonies held at CONY’s annual Exposition and Trade Show in November.
“We were amazed that in our first year CONY member parks raised well over $43,000 for Camp Good Days, far exceeding our expectations. It was overwhelming.” Bennett said. “Now, knowing what we’re capable of, we’re setting a fundraising goal of $50,000 to align with the fact that CONY is celebrating 50 years as an association this year. Marketing & Communications Director Suzanne Bixby said CONY members are raising funds in a variety of ways, big and small.
“Last year proved that any effort, whether it brings in five dollars or five hundred dollars, really adds up and makes a difference.”
