It’s time for the annual Camp Good Days Radio Special! on Saturday, Dec. 17 from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Fox Sports 1280 WHTK and worldwide on iHeartRadio.

Listen to founder Gary Mervis, executive director of Camp Good Days & Special Times Wendy Mervis, CEO and founder of Salvatore’s Pizza SoccerSam Fantauzzo, Rich Jones, Jeff DiVeronica and Ashley Maria. The Radio Special will also stream on Salvatore’s Pizza’s Facebook Live.

This will be’s 18th year partnering with Camp Good Days to air a holiday special to raise money for the camp, as well as spreading the word about the Camp’s initiatives, goals & upcoming events.

“It’s an honor to help raise money & awareness for Camp Good Days,” said Fantauzzo, who is the Rochester Lancers owner. “I have visited the camp many times and The Mervis’ Family, CGD staff, and all their volunteers work so hard to allow children to come together in a fun & safe environment and give them a place to just be a kid – surrounded by other children who may have similar stories or experiences as them. It is truly unique and incredible, and it is my wish that everyone donates either monetarily or with volunteer time to help keep this Camp thriving.”

Camp Good Days and Special Times is a year-round camp that includes recreational and support activities in Rochester and the surrounding areas in efforts to improve the quality of life for families affected by cancer or sickle cell anemia. All programs and services are offered free of charge for all participants, which relies heavily on donations and support. Every donation made to the camp helps keep their residential camping and programs free, allowing for the creation of “good days & special times” for the children and families.

The radio special will explain what makes Camp Good Days so unique and heartfelt, and allows for a first-hand recollection from Gary Mervis of the beginning days of the Camp, the origin of their mission statement, and a remembrance of Elizabeth “Teddi” Mervis.

Listeners are welcome to call into the show to share stories of experiences at Camp Good Days, or ask Gary and Wendy Mervis questions about their programs & services offered.

“Participating in the annual Christmas Radiothon has become a holiday tradition of mine that I look forward to each year. It has been such a pleasure to be able to share this tradition with SoccerSam; a longtime dedicated supporter of Camp Good Days,” Gary Mervis said. “Each year I am honored to be given this fantastic opportunity to share the mission of Camp Good Days with so many.”
