    How is it that Royal Chrysler gets the headline about “giving $10,000” when really all these students pictured took time out of their busy schedules to set up the Santacon Bar Crawl Event. These students took turns tableing for 3 hours a night at local bars and restaurants so other students could purchase t-shirts and wristbands to raise money for these toys. On top of that they went to Wal-Mart and purchased all these gifts and transported them to the dealership in their own cars. This is a disgrace after all the hours these students put into organizing this event. They did this out of the kindness of their heart.

    There are several agencies involved.. Oneonta City Police – Marines – Veterans – Royal Auto- Salvation Army Of Oneonta – plus dozens more stop by Royal over 45 days to donate gifts under the direction of the Marines and Royal Auto….. Royal Auto is pictured because They are the Selected Center for drop off for the gifts and insures the safe arrival to all areas and counties involved. This is Royals Third year taken the total responsibility of the end results . How about we think about the kids and not get nasty around the Holidays…. After all isn’t that the main focus,….. Try to have a great Holiday and be cheerful.
