“Today is like cookienado,” joked Dick Skrinjar as he unveiled a table filled with hundreds of mostly homemade cookies, 10 dozen of which his wife, Barbara, baked herself. “They appear out of the sky!”

Celebrating its 22nd year, the Bob O'Connor Cookie Cruise set sail from the docks at Station Square on Aug. 20, where two of the Gateway Clipper's fleet were required to handle 1,200 guests.

“He'd love it,” Corey O'Connor (with Katie) said of his father and our city's late mayor. “It's great that it goes to charity. We can still carry on his tradition. It's a win for everybody.”

Judy O'Connor, the Rev. Terry O'Connor, Heidy Garth, Randy Frankel, Tommy Joyce, David Caliguiri, Bob Jablonowski, Wayne Kelly, Mayor Bill Peduto, County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, and Erin McClelland were among the crowd. Proceeds benefitted the O'Connor Foundation in support of local charities.
