North Hills hosting charity Trunk-or-Treat event, car cruise

Tony LaRussa
North Hills High School students are hosting a charity “trunk-or-treat” event and car cruise Oct. 29, 2019 in honor of Jake Wudarczyk, who died at age 16 following a 20-month battle with brain cancer. Money raised from the event will be donated to Make-A-Wish and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh foundations.

The student council and the Hands for Service Club at North Hills High School are sponsoring a Trunk-or-Treat to raise money for charity in memory of a student who died in 2016.

The Saturday, Oct. 26, event will be from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of North Hills Middle School and will include a car cruise, trunk-or-treating, face painting, 50/50 and basket raffles and a concession stand.

The premise for trunk-or-treating is to decorate a vehicle’s trunk with Halloween items and pass out treats as participants meander from vehicle to vehicle.

A contest for the best decorated vehicle trunk also will be held.

Money raised from the Trunk-or-Treat and car cruise will benefit Make-A-Wish and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh foundations.

This year’s event replaces the Monster Dash 5K that was held for the past three years in honor of North Hills junior Jake Wudarczyk, who died at 16 following a 20-month battle with brain cancer.

Wudarczyk was a Make-A-Wish recipient and was able to attend the inaugural Monster Dash two months before his death.

Organizers decided to host a new event in Wudarczyk’s honor because of his love for cars.

The middle school is located at 55 Rochester Road in Ross Township.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
