Seven Allegany County charities share in Hot Dog Day 2007 proceeds

Hot Dog Day, organized by Alfred University and Alfred State College, is a fundraising event for local charities in Allegany County. Hot Dog Day features rides, arts and crafts, hot dogs, and the mud Olympics. This year, $1,200 —proceeds from the spring 2007 event—were distributed to seven charities.

The recipients are: AE Crandall Hook and Ladder Co., Alfred; Alfred Box of Books Library; Alfred Montessori School, Alfred Station Fire Co.; Allegany ARC; Allegany County Mental Health Association; and The SPCA Serving Allegany County.

Patricia Debertolis, director of new student programs at Alfred University, explained that a student executive board, made up of AU and ASC students, chooses the beneficiaries of the Hot Dog Day proceeds.
