Family Promise to consider suspending operations



On Saturday, Oct. 27, the organization, in conjunction with both the Town and the City of Plattsburgh, will host the Great Pumpkin Prediction Race in hopes of raising enough money to at least sustain the program through the end of the year. 

The event, at the Crete Civic Center, will feature Halloween-inspired foot races for all ages. 

Participants are encouraged to wear costumes and may choose between courses of different distances. 

Individuals may preregister for the event by Monday, Oct. 15, by visiting Preregistration cost $20 for adults and $15 for children age 16 and younger.

People may also register at the Crete Center between 10 and 11:45 a.m. on the day of the races for $30. 

The races start at noon, and prizes will be awarded to race winners, as well as winners of various costume categories. 

In addition, Uno Chicago Grill in Plattsburgh will make donations to Family Promise when diners present their servers with special coupons that will be given out at the race.  

Those coupons can also be obtained at the Family Promise office at 36 Brinkerhoff St. in Plattsburgh. 

“We’re just really trying to keep our doors open as long as we can,” Bradish said.
