MASON, OH (FOX19) -

Kings Island marketing director Marissa Brock on Sunday presented a check for $186,000 to representatives from Pink Ribbon Girls, The Dragonfly Foundation and Melanoma Know More.

Each organization received $62,000 from the money raised during the inaugural Kings Island Kicks Cancer campaign which began July 25.

Park visitors contributed to the campaign by buying a soccer ball for $5 and kicking it into the park fountain for a chance to win a new 2015 Honda Fit.

A soccer ball purchased by Tanya Drake of Covington, Kentucky was randomly selected among the 21,854 soccer balls in the fountain as the winner of the car.
