In those 11  plus years of hosting the Snyder party which equals to around 5000 dinners,  Sweeney’s message to the young people at Snyder has always been study, work hard,  and pay it forward to others.

The event is an exciting time for Sweeney, his wife Kathleen his sons  and staff as told by  Sweeney’s  son Jay, ” For us at the Casino in the Park it is a joy to see these young people having a great time, they’re all great kids with good grades and all we ask is they go out and help others in their lives.”  He Said. “Our one message through the years go out and do something wonderful for someone else.”
