Rock in the Park brings in $7,300 for Toys for Tots

BAINBRIDGE – Rock in the Park organizers presented a Chenango County Toys for Tots representative with a check for $7,300 Wednesday, money was raised during the 2nd annual Rock in the Park music extravaganza, which took place on August 10. The cash will be used to buy toys for local Chenango County children who otherwise might be subjected to a toyless Christmas.

The money donated from this month’s fundraiser represents the single largest donation of its kind to the local charity and is double that raised during last year’s Rock in the Park fundraiser.

“For the economy being depressed and for Erica and Jason to be able to accomplish this, it’s a testimony to the community,” said Chenango County Toys to Tots’ Roger Barnhart, a 28-year veteran of the organization who has served in any number of capacities, from operating collection boxes at shopping malls to whatever grunt work is needed.
