A 2011 “Scrooge” candidate in Atlantic got a big boost in their votes Wednesday, and the Atlantic Food Pantry received a healthy donation of non-perishable food items, thanks to the family of Trevor Frederickson. The family visited their favorite “scrooge” candidate, Janet Cappel Wednesday evening, and dropped off 329 items for the food pantry.

Scrooge candidates are raising funds and non-perishable items for the Atlantic Food Pantry through December 2nd. The Scrooge who raises the most will get to serve as the “Grand Marshal” in the Lighted Christmas Parade on December 3rd, in downtown Atlantic.

Candidates for the 2011 “Scrooge” contest include: Aaron Siggins, with the Atlantic Hy-Vee store; Janet Cappel, from Cappel’s Ace Hardware; Nancy Fredrickson, with Geis Perry Jewelry; Brad Peerbolte, with Peerbolte Chiropractic; and, Karen Nelson, from the Handbag Ranch.

Each candidate will accept donations at their respective businesses. Many have special promotions in the works. One dollar or one non-perishable item equals a vote for the Scrooge candidate.
