Campground Owners of New York (CONY), a trade association of privately owned campgrounds in New York State, has initiated its first-ever association-wide fundraiser benefiting Camp Good Days and Special Times, a New York state-based organization providing camping experiences to children with cancer.

Member campgrounds and RV Parks across New York are participating in this fundraiser. All proceeds raised by CONY will be donated directly to Camp Good Days and Special Times at a ceremony to be held at CONY’s annual Exposition and Trade Show in November.

According to CONY’s Marketing & Communications Director Suzanne Bixby, CONY members are raising funds in a variety of ways.

“All through the summer camping season, CONY campgrounds and RV parks are displaying change-collection jars, selling t-shirts and paper balloons, and hosting fundraising events such as raffles, dances, barbeques, walks, and more,” Bixby said. “We think this is going to be a positive kickoff to an annual charitable activity by CONY, and we’re pleased to start our good works by helping a great New York state-based charity like Camp Good Days.”
