RYE, N.Y. The Rye Recreation Department, in cooperation with Birdie's Auto Spa, will host a fundraiser from Monday through July 21 to help families pay for summer camp through the Rye Recreation Camp Scholarship Fund.
Birdie's Auto Spa will sponsor a two-week car wash special at its "green" car wash, 180 Theodore Fremd Ave. A percentage of each car wash, detail and other services will go to the fund, which will help 30 families send children to camp. The Rye Recreation Department raises $20,000 in camp scholarships each summer.
Recreation Superintendent Sue Rogol cited several local sponsors that have contributed to the fund each summer. They include Midland/Milton/Osborn PTOs, Rye Middle School Parent Organization, Rye Police Benevolent Association, Rye Lions Club, Agatha Durland Foundation, the Women's Association of the Rye Presbyterian Church, Rye Seniors, Rye Youth Soccer, Rye Youth Lacrosse, Children's Philanthropy of the Woman's Club of Rye, Kiwanis Club and the Executive Club.
Those interested in contributing to the fund by patronizing Birdie's Auto Spa are asked to mention the fundraiser before being served.
