Get out and vote for Scrooge!

Friday, November 30, 2012

Which Celebrity Scrooge will be leading this year's Lighted Christmas Parade, Thursday, December 6? The parade is set to begin at 6 p.m. and will travel through Downtown Cherokee.

Five Chamber members are competing for the honor of being Grand Marshal, aka Scrooge, during the 14th annual Wonderful World of Christmas parade. They include: Mike Hunter of Cherokee State Bank, Jim Nelson of Bomgaars, Steve Ebert of Wilson's TV and Appliance, Gary McCormick of Hy-Vee Drug, and Dr. Cassady Rider of Applewhite Dental Partners.

The public is invited to cast their vote for scrooge by dropping their loose change or monetary donation in the can for their favorite scrooge. Cans are located at each contestant's respective business. The individual who collects the most money will dress the part of scrooge in the Lighted Christmas parade.

All of the money raised will be donated to the food pantry at the Mid Sioux Opportunity Center. The deadline to cast your vote is Wednesday, December 5.

Help us raise money for a worthy cause while supporting your favorite Scrooge in Cherokee. The Lighted Christmas Parade and Scrooge contest are sponsored by the Cherokee Chamber of Commerce.
