For the past seven years, Wildcats Go Gold Spirit Day has become the most popular fall event for the Mt. Pleasant Wildcats. Sunday, September 26, was a picture-perfect day for celebrating as a community. Spirit Day brings together athletes, cheerleaders, spectators and families from Mt. Pleasant, Armonk, Pleasantville and Valhalla communities to stand up together in the fight against childhood cancer. In addition to several games of football, attendees enjoyed a candy bar, a plant sale, face painting, pumpkin painting, concessions, raffles and amazing food. The event was once again an amazing success. Since it’s inception, Spirt Day has raised about $165,000 for the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation.
Spirit Day is made possible by the kindness and generosity of local businesses, volunteers and residents in the community. Event organizer and Director of the Board for the TLC foundation, Lori Ferrara, said “We pulled together in three weeks and it’s even bigger and better, so it’s a testament to a lot of people and volunteers because that’s what this day is truly about. It’s about community and teaching our kids to give back and fight for something bigger than them.”
