Fan launches food drive to show support for fired Sugar Plum Fairy

ST. CHARLES • Fans of the fired Sugar Plum Fairy have come up with a sweet way to show support.

Mike Swart, who started a Facebook page to save the Sugar Plum Fairy's job, is organizing a food drive that includes sweets as well as traditional food pantry items. He's hoping the thousand-plus people who have "liked" the Facebook page will participate.


Laura Coppinger, 29, who portrayed the character at the annual Christmas Traditions festival on historic Main Street for the last six years, was fired for cursing, not on the job, but when she went to take a drug test mandated for all city employees.
