Fox Run Vineyards Owner Scott Osborn Who Receives Camp Good Days Award

Penn Yan, NY 8211; Fox Run Vineyards owner Scott Osborn was presented the Teddi Award from Camp Good Days on December 10, 2006 at their annual holiday party held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center . He was recognized for his work with the Camp Good Days wine competition, auction and dinner fundraising events. The Teddi Award is an honor that Camp Good Days bestows upon individuals from the community who, through their continued efforts, have gone above and beyond to help improve the quality of life for children and families whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life threatening challenges over the past year.

Osborn has been active with Camp Good Days for the past 7 years, sitting on the committee for the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition and the Wine Auction and Dinner, where all net proceeds from the competition and its special event benefits Camp Good Days and Special Times, Inc.

“Scott Osborn has been one of the key participants in founding and running the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, now the largest wine competition for a charity in North America and is now the largest fundraiser for Camp Good Days. As a founding member of the committee, Scott is also a great advisor, helping the competition and auction bring as much attention and value to all the wineries in New York . Camp Good Day’s Teddi award is a small way for Camp to say ‘thanks’ to Scott for all he has done to help thousands of children over the years!” states Peter Parts, Board Member Camp Good Days and President, Peter Parts Electronics.

Osborn states, “It is a personal honor to receive the Teddi award for my work with Camp Good Days. We all have known someone affected by cancer and it is easy to donate my time to such a worthwhile cause.”
