Drink up, help YWCA’s York Halloween Parade & Pumpkin Fun Run

Several downtown businesses are selling these cups for $5 that come filled with perks to help raise money for the YWCA’s York Halloween Parade & Pumpkin Fun Run.

A handful of downtown businesses are teaming up and selling cups that come filled with perks to help raise money for this year’s YWCA’s York Halloween Parade & Pumpkin Fun Run.

Each cup is $5 and can be purchased at any of the participating businesses. The perks range from discounts on meals to free fill-ups of sodas.

This year marks the 63rd annual parade, which starts at 2 p.m. Oct. 28.

Six years ago, the city of York decided it could no longer afford to run the annual Halloween parade, and the York YWCA stepped in. Recently, though, the YWCA decided it, too, could no longer afford to run the annual York tradition, and announced this year will be the final year it sponsors the parade.

The group’s board of directors cited declining support from local sponsors as part of the reason to vote against running the parade next year.

But at least six local businesses are stepping up to help this year and are offering discounts and other perks as a fundraiser for the parade.

Use your cup at these locations for the following perks:

You can buy a cup from J.R.’s Fresh Cut French Fries at Central Market and other downtown locations.
