Last Year’s Event
Convoy for a Cause 2015 was in Montgomery County this Sunday, September 6, 2015 with registration taking place from at Beech Nut off of State Highway 5s in Amsterdam, with dozens of commercial trucks and emergency vehicles from throughout the region and beyond forming a convoy. Convoy for a Cause departed Beech Nut before traveling State Highway 5s and eventually arriving at the 174th Annual Fonda Fair in the Village of Fonda. This year’s convoy raised support for three area causes including Gloversville Baby Jackson Baldwin who suffers from Epidermolysis Bullosa, the Wounded Warrior Project, and Capital Region Toys for Tots which serves 14 counties in Upstate New York.
