Do you live in an apartment in Charlotte, NC? If so, you have surely been to Carowinds. Now the best amusement park in the Southeast is teaming up with Susan G. Komen Charlotte for Carowinds for the Cure. This is a four-week fundraising initiative going on now through August 18th.
What is Carowinds for the Cure? You can purchase tickets to the park at a reduced price. These special tickets will be sold exclusively online at www.carowinds.com/forthecure, with one dollar from each ticket going to Komen Charlotte. Additional Carowinds for the Cure merchandise will be available for purchase at the park and with a portion of the proceeds going to the organization.
Inside the park, you will also have the opportunity to possibly win a car in the 'adopt-a-duck' raffle. Ducks can be purchased at the park, online and at Scott Clark Toyota and Honda for five dollars. Net proceeds from the raffle will go to Komen Charlotte. Each duck will be tossed into the pond beneath the Nighthawk rollercoaster. One duck will be chosen and the “owners” of the winning duck will win a new car, a 2013 Toyota Camry, or a 2013 Honda Accord, donated by Scott Clark Toyota and Honda.
Carowinds and Komen Charlotte want to raise funds as well as awareness of patients, survivors , and education on the importance of mammograms and early detection.
