Local Campaign Raises $2,000 For Child Advocacy Center of Oswego County

OSWEGO, NY,  – Hundreds of SUNY Oswego students filled Lighthouse Lanes on March 3 to show their support to the ‘For The Kids’ campaign seeking to raise $10,000 for the Child Advocacy Center of Oswego County.

The campaign was  created by Oswego State students Denvol Haye, member of Delta Kappa Kappa fraternity, and Eli Kim-Swallow, a forward on the Oswego State Men’s Ice Hockey team, to raise awareness about child abuse and reduce its devastating impact in Oswego County.

Approximately 300 people attended the fundraiser.

The event began at 6 p.m. and continued until midnight, attracting multiple demographics of friends, families, community members and students from Oswego State.

The event generated $2,000; all proceeds will be donated to the CAC at the conclusion of the campaign in April.

In addition, “For The Kids’ will be hosting its second annual fundraiser on April 11 at Cheap Seats in Oswego.

The event will feature a barbeque, a silent auction, a raffle, outdoor games and  live musical performances courtesy of Zeta band.

For more information and to make an online donation, “Like” For The Kids on Facebook.

Delta Kappa Kappa, a social fraternity whose general purpose is to foster the development of fellowship, scholarship, and leadership in young men, and the nationally ranked Oswego State Men’s Ice Hockey team each have a history of supporting non-profit organizations in and around Oswego.

Both strive to better their community.

Located at 301 Beech St. in Fulton, with a satellite office at 4822 Salina St. in Pulaski, the CAC of Oswego County is a non-profit charitable organization that works hand-in-hand with local law enforcement, prosecution, child protective services, medical providers, therapy providers, and victim advocacy professionals in Oswego County to protect and serve children that are victims of sexual and physical abuse.
