John Roebuck of Perryopolis is beside his unique Chevy Corvette “Eagle” designed car.

Car registration was $10, and funds raised through the Bag Brigade will go to help fight youth hunger. About 10 awards were given to participants: including ‘Best of Show’, ‘Survivor’, ‘Most/Best Modified’, ‘Officer’s Choice’ and ‘Best Halloween’ theme. In addition to trophies, there was featured food, drinks, 50/50 Chinese Auction, and more.

The two organizers of the event were Kayte Chermely, Starbucks Store Manager and Jackie DeLeonibus, Starbucks Shift Supervisor. DeLeonibus said, “We host this event and donate all of our proceeds to the Bag Brigade. They pack after school meals to students in the local school districts.”

The Brigade was started five years ago by Kathy Kelly and Ashlee Eisengart when they saw a need at Marion Elementary School. They began with distributing 20 bags a week. Now they are providing 240 packed meals on a weekly basis to children in the district. They say that their church, Gospel Alliance in Rostraver Twp., and the community “stepped up tremendously” with donations.
