“We had high hopes for the TRC this year, but this is just awesome,” Chamber CEO Faustine Curry said. “The whole business community came together to help us and the response just goes to show how great Mount Pleasant is.”
Luminant’s Troy Sellers led the last-minute charge, raising $8,550 in the campaign’s final days, while Eunice Parham of Guaranty Bond Bank added $4,176 and Kim Crabb of Diamond C Trailers raised $3,647.
Crabb led the entire campaign with $11,836 raised while American National Bank’s Sheila Donnelly was second with $9,999. Parham was third in the campaign with $9,677 raised.

“When we set out, we thought $100,000 was a pretty high goal,” Curry said. “With the help of all of our volunteers and local businesses, we found out just what this town can do.”
