Miss Sunnyside court to collect 'coins for cancer'

Mark your calendar! This Thursday from 2 to 5 p.m., the Miss Sunnyside court will be out and about collecting spare change.

The young ladies intend to donate the contributions to the American Cancer Society.

"We're calling it Coins for Cancer," said Dianna Mendoza, one of the royal court.

"We're going to go to as many businesses as we can in three hours. Kerri's community service project is for the American Cancer Society, so this is part of it," Mendoza added.

Kerri is Kerri Urrutia, this year's Miss Sunnyside, and Mendoza is serving as publicity chairman for the spontaneous event that will take place Thursday.

"A chaperone will drive us. And we might plan another one, too, if this one turns out good," added Mendoza.
