On Monday, June 18, the Sundance Vacations Wilkes-Barre QAR and TSR departments held an ice cream fundraiser for Candy’s Place.

Employees at our Wilkes-Barre office were able to donate $2.00 for 1 scoop of ice cream plus their choice of toppings, or $3.00 for two scoops and toppings! While the employees enjoyed their Sundays, there were tables set up with information about Candy’s Place. After the day was concluded, the team raised $320! Co-owners, John and Tina Dowd then donated $180 making the total amount donated $500!

Sundance Vacations QAR/TSR Manager Ben Uzialko and his team invited Debra Ganz, and Jacklyn Ganz of Candy’s Place to stop by our Sudnance Vacations Wilkes-Barre office to present them with the fundraising.
