Local businesses will be decked out in gold throughout September.


POKANE, Wash. -- Many Spokane businesses said they will participate in September's campaign to bring awareness to childhood cancer.

Steam Plant is one business that plans to help "Paint the City Gold."

"The smoke stacks themselves are an iconic piece of downtown Spokane," said Spencer Sowl, Steam Plant Operation and Property Manager.

The American Childhood Childhood Cancer Organization began the movement as a way for businesses to help show support. And Sowl said he thinks the stacks are a great place to do so.

"Everybody can see them. Especially if you're coming from the freeway or if you're coming from the north side."

The stack feature a 25 new light fixtures per smoke stack that are multi-colored. Sowl said they can change the stacks to any color they want.

"The goal is to bring awareness to the community," said Sowl. "Everybody in the community is looking for good things that are happening, and these good things, we want to be a part of promoting it."
