PLEASANTVILLE – The Donny Fund celebrated its 20th year of giving Sunday, June 15 at the Yacht Club of Pleasantville.

The 20th annual Donny Fund Day included a 2½-mile row, swim or paddle surf across Lake’s Bay and a 5K run or walk along the shore of Lake’s Bay to raise money for the Donny Fund, a division of the John and Nancy Sykes Foundation, which benefits local children with catastrophic illnesses.

The Donny Fund was created in 1993 to honor the memory of Donald Sykes. Its mission is to aid area families affected by catastrophic illness and to promote universal positivity and optimism.

Proceeds provide transportation, clothing, home care, medication, chemotherapy, and special days out for those in need in the local community.

Additionally, the Donny Fund and JNS Foundation support the South Jersey Field of Dreams, a place where physically and mentally challenged children and adults can play baseball.
