A night to honor those who give their time to children fighting serious illnesses.
Camp Good Days recognized those people on Friday night at the Teddi Awards and Ring of Honor ceremony and dinner held at the Rochester Plaza Hotel on State Street.
Gary Mervis, who founded Camp Good Days after his daughter Teddi got sick, reflected on just how much the organization has grown.
Mervis says "It changed my life, it went in a different direction and who would believe at 35 years later. Almost 45,000 campers from 27 different countries and 22 different states have all had a chance to be a part of camp good days."
At Friday night's dinner, Camp Good Days honored people who went above and beyond over the past year with a Teddi Award. People who have done that for several years were inducted into the organization's Ring of Honor.
