Genesee St. You may be asking what is Hoodie Hoo Day well….Northerners go out at noon, wave

 

their hands over their heads and chant “Hoodie-Hoo!”. It is a day to chase away winter and

 

bring in spring! After all, we’re all sick and tired of winter at this point and a little crazy from

 

being cooped up inside all winter and not seeing the sun!

 

This year, in celebration of Hoodie Hoo Day our Retail Therapists are putting on a special

 

event! In memory of our beloved friend and co-worker Mary Anne, whom we lost to ovarian

 

cancer, 1st National Gifts will donate $1 to the new Upstate Cancer Center for each customer

 

who shouts “Hoodie Hoo!” in the store (maximum donation of $500) on Monday, 2/20. Help us

 

get through the winter days and raise funds in memory of our friend Mary Anne. (315) 685-5454
