Kings Island is raising hope while hosting Pink Days from Aug. 1 through Aug. 25.

Guests of the amusement park will experience all the park has to offer at a discounted price of $31.99 when tickets are purchased online in advance. During Pink Days, $1 from each online ticket sold will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Cincinnati affiliate. It's all part of the third annual Kings Island for the Cure campaign which raises money in the fight against breast cancer.

A pink rubber Snoopy can be purchased for $5 online, at Kings Island or at Huntington Bank locations for a chance to win a 2012 Honda Fit. On Aug. 25, one random Snoopy will be chosen out of the Royal Fountain and the Snoopy's owner will win the brand new car. All of the proceeds from the sales will go directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Cincinnati.

More than $400,000 has been raised through the Kings Island for the Cure Campaign.
