The Kings Island for the Cure campaign wraps up Saturday and organizers are hoping to surpass last year’s results
The fundraising event has raised more than $500,000 since it launched in 2010. Proceeds benefit the Greater Cincinnati affiliate of the Susan G. Komen organization’s work in breast cancer prevention and research.
Park officials recently reported it had surpassed $100,000 in this year’s campaign. Last year’s campaign raised $219,000.
Guests can support the efforts by purchasing pink rubber Snoopy dolls at the park, online or at any Huntington Bank location. Snoopys are $5 for one for $20 for five.
All Snoopys purchased will be tossed into the Royal Fountains at Kings Island. One Snoopy will be selected on Aug. 25 with the owner winning a 2012 Honda Fit.
KI will also donate $1 from each discounted tickets purchased online at www.visitkingsisland.com during its “Pink Days” campaign through Aug. 25.
The Mason theme park is celebrating its 40th anniversary this season. The park is open daily through Aug. 26
