Best in Backyards Donates Swing Set for Upcoming Auction


Best in Backyards, the retail division of Eastern Jungle Gym, has donated a cedar swing set to be auctioned off at the upcoming Share the Love gala, a fundraiser for childhood cancer research.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 9 at the Regency Hyatt in Greenwich, CT. It is hosted by the Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to raising funds for improved treatment of the most aggressive types of pediatric cancer.

More than 200 people from Fairfield County, Westchester County and the surrounding areas will dine and dance the night away from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. In addition to the auction, there will also be casino tables and an awards ceremony.

The Dream cedar swing set will be up for grabs starting with a $1,000 bid. Highlights include a 10-foot wave slide, a rock-climbing wall, a clubhouse with a tent top canopy, sling swings and more. It is made of solid cedar wood, with heavy duty hardware, high quality accessories, thru-bolt construction and a patent-pending Easy 1-2-3 A-Frame Bracket.

The swing set, together with professional delivery and installation*, is valued at $2,400.

“We’re thrilled to be working with the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation again,” said Rolf Zimmermann, vice president of sales for Best in Backyards and Eastern Jungle Gym. “This organization does such important work for the people we care about most: children. We’re delighted to have a product featured at this fantastic event.”

Best in Backyards and Eastern Jungle Gym have donated to this cause before. A Dream swing set was raffled off at the 2014 Mess Fest.
