It has been another successful year for CY in the Ronald McDonald House of Memphis’ (RHM) Pop-Tab-Palooza fundraiser. This is the second year that Cooper-Young has participated in the efforts to support the children and families of RMH by collecting pop-tabs to be cashed in with a recycling company.
The Evelyn crew (Cooper to Tanglewood) took home the gold, along with $100 courtesy of Beth and Steve Pulliam, in this year’s CY competition to collect the most tabs. This group turned in a whopping 17,580 tabs! Coming in a close second and receiving $50 courtesy of Jason Word, was the Oliver gang (Barksdale to Tanglewood) with 15,560 tabs. Third place went to the folks on Nelson (Barksdale to McLean) with 1,940 tabs, who won $25 also courtesy of Jason. The money awarded will be used to defray the cost of block parties and events.
Cooper-Young had a total of 7 block clubs participate and collected 39,720 pop-tabs. Thank you all for making Pop-Tab-Palooza such a success! If you are interested in participating and competing for block party funds next year, start collecting now!
