Golden Corral raising funds for Camp Corral

May 14, 2012 by  

The Lancaster Golden Corral restaurant on North Memorial Drive is collecting donations in an effort to send children to Camp Corral; a camp for children of disabled veterans. The Lancaster restaurant is currently trying to reach a target of $6,000 to send six kids to one of the nine Camp Corrals across the United States.

Mike Avellino, service manager at the Lancaster store, stated that the restaurant will be accepting donations until the end of this month.

The Disabled American Veteran Auxiliary Club and members of the Disabled American Veterans have also organized a table situated at the entrance of the store. Barry Hopkins, Treasurer and adjutant for the Chapter 40 Disabled American Veterans of Lancaster, said that he tries not to let anyone pass by without making a donation.

Special fundraising events, such as the one at the Lancaster Golden Corral, may use banner printers to attract attention to the event. In addition, flyer printing, poster printing and other forms of advertisement might be used to attract the attention of citizens and raise money for the cause.

The Golden Corral chain has worked over the last two years to develop nine Camp Corrals in Ohio, West Virginia, and Florida and six other states. Each Colden Corral restaurant is attempting to raise $6,000 to send these kids to one of the camps. This is the first year the Lancaster restaurant has participated in the fundraising event and over $4,000 has currently been raised.
