Silverwood does good

Ticket sales benefit food banks

Silverwood Theme Park does something a little special come September -- it holds Community Appreciation Weekends coming up Sept. 9-10, 16-17, and 23-24. This is a great chance for folks to save money on lower admission prices (save even more by purchasing online) plus help local food banks! For every general admission ticket sold, $4 is donated to local food banks ($1 for senior/youth). P.S. Say hi to Garfield and Odie!
