Phinney chorus wins Figgy Pudding caroling contest

Phinney Neighborhood Chorus took home the award for “Best Choral Group” at last Friday’s annual Great Figgy Pudding Caroling Contest at Westlake Center. The 70-member group won for its unique version of “Sleigh Ride Together,” which twisted the lyrics from “Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap, let’s go, let’s look at the show – we’re riding in a wonderland of snow,” to “Pony up, Pony up, pony up, let’s go, let’s raise us some dough – for the hungry and needy don’t you know.”
Figgy Pudding is a fundraiser for the Pike Market Senior Center and Downtown Food Bank. The Phinney Chorus raised $3,000 for the cause – the third highest amount among the more than 40 groups entered in the competition.
