“Pink Out 2010” Event in Pennridge School District to Raise Funds for Breast Care Services at Grand View Hospital
(November 8, 2010) Sellersville, PA – Pennridge High School sophomore Sarah Seiler is finalizing plans to raise funds to benefit Breast Care Services at Grand View Hospital through a “Pink Out 2010” event to be held at the Pennridge High School football game on Friday, November 12.
Sarah and other members of Pennridge High School’s student council are asking everyone to wear pink to the game in support of breast cancer awareness. “I hope to see a stadium full of people wearing pink,” says Sarah, who has designed a “Pink Out 2010” imprinted T-shirt. Student council has also arranged for the Pennridge football team to wear pink socks and for cheerleaders and band members to wear pink bows.
“As word gets out the event is growing and growing,” says Sarah, who was inspired to hold a “Pink Out” student council community service project after recognizing that breast cancer, the second leading cause of cancer in American women, affects a great number of people within the community.
In addition to raising funds through the sale of pink T-shirts, Sarah and other student council members are accepting don ations from local businesses and organizations. Additionally, donation jars are being placed at Pennridge High School and at the stadium for the November 12 football game. Donations may be made in cash or check payable to Grand View Health Foundation with a notation “Pink Out 2010.”
