Pittsford, New York – After tallying all the figures, Campground Owners of New York (CONY) announces today that Skyline Camping Resort & RV Sales in Darien Center, New York, operated by the Tybor family, raised $5,394 in donations for Camp Good Days and Special Times, as part of CONY’s fourth annual statewide fundraising event for charity held throughout 2015.
According to Suzanne Bixby, CONY’s Marketing and Communications Director, the association raised a total of $91,000 in 2015, bringing CONY’s four-year fundraising total for Camp Good Days to approximately $248,000.
“We are, simply put, grateful to CONY parks like Skyline Camping Resort, as well as their campers and supporters, for helping us raise our largest annual total yet for Camp Good Days and Special Times,” Bixby said. “And I think we’re all a little proud that we’re bringing smiles and camping fun to children and their families braving cancer.”
Throughout the 2015 camping season, Skyline Camping Resort & RV Sales held a 50/50 raffle, a horseshoe tournament, and other raffles and sales.
With fundraising by CONY campgrounds from across New York State, a combined total of $91,000 in checks were presented to by CONY leaders to Camp Good Days and Special Times Founder Gary Mervis at a special ceremony on November 14, 2015, during CONY’s annual exposition held at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York.
Camp Good Days and Special Times is a New York State-based organization providing camping experiences free of charge to children with cancer. Since its inception, Camp Good Days has served more than 45,000 campers from 22 states and 29 foreign countries at its camp, located on the shores of Keuka Lake.
