Rock in the Park fundraiser returns bigger and better

BAINBRIDGE – Chenango County’s largest Toys for Tots fundraiser looms ever closer as the calendar days separating the present from August 10 quickly disappear. Last year, when things were looking dismal for underprivileged Chenango youths, Jason and Erica Hall took it upon themselves to organize the first ever “Rock in the Park” fundraiser to benefit the area’s Toys for Tots, held at the General Clinton Park in Bainbridge.

Flooding in 2011 adversely affected the charitable organizations ability to spread Christmas spirit. A large portion of the toys which are given Chenango County children each year traditionally originate with the Binghamton Toys ‘R’ Us, but after spending time submerged in 2011, the toy store was unable to make its usual contribution.

It was during the Chenango County Toys for Tots’ time of need that the Halls decided to host their fundraiser. Luckily for the children, it was an unequivocal success, generating $3,742 and collecting 12 bags of toys.
