Oneida Nation Sponsors Oz-Stravaganza in Chittenango with $5,000 Donation
Ray Halbritter, Oneida Nation Representative and CEO of Nation Enterprises, today presented a check for $5,000 to Oz-Stravaganza (www.oz-stravaganza.com ) in Chittenango. The Nation and its Turning Stone Resort Casino are lead sponsors of this year’s June 3-5 event, including its 33rd Annual Grand “Oz” Parade on June 4. Chittenango is the birthplace of L. Frank Baum, author of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” which was made into the film “Wizard of Oz” starring Judy Garland. The Nation’s donation will also be used to sponsor this year’s visit to the event by Margaret Pellegrini, one of the flower pot Munchkins from the 1939 movie classic. The event draws thousands of visitors annually to Central New York.
