SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — More than 300 people braved winds and cold temperatures for a children's charity event at the Cedar Point amusement park in northern Ohio.

Cedar Point gave participants a behind-the-scenes view of the park at the Winter Chill Out event on Saturday. Officials at the park in Sandusky say the event raised more than $13,000 for Give Kids The World Village. The 70-acre central Florida nonprofit resort provides cost-free, weeklong vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families from around the world.

The park is owned by amusement park operator Cedar Fair Entertainment Co.

Cedar Fair owns more than a dozen amusement parks and water parks around the country, along with a handful of hotels
