Ho Ho Horrendous: Seton Leads Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest

Helping this year with Stand Up to Cancer‘s Second Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater campaign are the four Danettes. Their daily, charitable jousting began on The Dan Patrick Show the week of Thanksgiving and runs through December 20.

A rep tells FishbowlNY that Patrick O’Connor, a.k.a. Seton, has the early lead. Viewers of the radio show’s TV and online streams are being encouraged to text the name of their ugly-win Danette to 40202. The text sends along $10 to the SUTC campaign and registers a vote for the Danette in question.

As with most things Danette, there a payback angle. Whoever receives the highest amount of total weekly-round donations will get to make one of the others wear an ugly sweater for an additional subsequent week.

Update (December 23):
Seton carried through his early lead to a final, aggregate win. His fashion faux pas raised $1,480 for SU2C.
