Rochester, NY ~ Camp Good Days & Special Times’ Car Raffle winner, Scott C. was presented with a 2018 Toyota Corolla SE on March 24th at Vanderstyne Toyota.  He was joined by his family, Jay Jay Vanderstyne, Sales Manager at Vanderstyne Toyota, and Wendy Mervis, the Executive Director of Camp Good Days.

Thanks to Vanderstyne Toyota and Toyota Motor Corporation, the Corolla was given to Camp Good Days, free of charge, to be raffled off.  The car raffle began on September 16, 2017 at Courage Bowl XIII at St. John Fisher College and the winner was drawn on January 11, 2018 at the Camp Good Days Open House.  The raffle in total raised $24,000 for Camp Good Days which will help provide its services to children and families affected by cancer free of charge to the participants. 

“We are very fortunate and humbled to be associated with Camp Good Days. What Gary and Wendy do for so many people is truly incredible and we are just happy to be a small part of that,” Jay Jay Vanderstyne said.

This is the second time that the winning ticket was purchased at the Courage Bowl, and this year, the winning family has a child attending St. John Fisher College who is also on the football team. 

“First, thank you to Vanderstyne Toyota for their generosity,” Scott C. said, “Camp Good Days and Special Times does wonderful work. Cancer is difficult, and Camp Good Days is a wonderful organization that helps families get through the tough times. I really love the relationship that St. John Fisher has with Camp Good Days. Coach Vosburgh and the staff of the Cardinals Football Team have a strong partnership with camp through the Courage Bowl, where I purchased the ticket to win the car.  It’s also a great lesson in volunteerism that the football team visits Camp Good Days before the season.  Thank you for this wonderful prize.”
