2013 Kings Island for the Cure, Snoopy selection for a car - | WBTV Charlotte

Park gearing up for 2013 Kings Island for the Cure

MASON, OH (FOX19) -

While Kings Island specializes in thrill-inducing attractions with 200-foot drops, the park is also pretty good at raising hope.

During "Pink Days" at Kings Island August 1-24, guests can experience all the thrills the 364-acre amusement and waterpark has to offer while having an opportunity to help make an impact during the fourth annual Kings Island for the Cure campaign to raise money in the fight against breast cancer.

During this time, tickets will sell online for just $31.99. $1 from each ticket sold will go to the Cincinnati affiliate for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Guests will have an opportunity to purchase a pink rubber Snoopy for a chance to win a brand new 2013 Honda Accord courtesy of Kings Honda and Performance Honda.

Pink Snoopy's are just $5 for one or five for $20 and can be purchased at the park or at Huntington Bank locations for your chance to win the car.

On August 24, one lucky Snoopy will be randomly selected from the fountain and the owner of the Snoopy will win the car.

If you can't make it to the park for the live drawing, be sure to join the FOX19 Morning Team that morning for the drawing!

All proceeds from the Snoopy sales go directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Cincinnati affiliate.

Entering this season, nearly $600,000 has been raised for Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Cincinnati affiliate through the campaign.
