Cooke gets ugly for a good cause

Dec. 21, 2015

On Friday, Dec. 18, the George L. Cooke Elementary School Spirit Committee held its first “Ugly Sweater Contest.” It was hideously wonderful to see all the participants dressed in their season’s most frightfully atrocious outfits for the whole school to see.

The winner who donned the ugliest of all entries sported a home crafted sweater complete with a flowing cape. Roseanne Green was crowned the winner and awarded a sash saying “Ugliest Sweater Ever” which she proudly wore all day. The contest raised $200 which has been donated in full to The Ronald McDonald House of The Greater Hudson Valley. Way to spread the holiday cheer through your generosity!
