On Wednesday, October 7, the PMA Panthers held their 7th Annual “Pink Out” – a volleyball game dedicated to raising money for breast cancer. The team dressed in all pink uniforms and asked everyone who came to the game to also dress in pink.
The team charged a small admission fee, sold food and had a 50/50 raffle to raise funds during the game.
On Friday, October 9, PMA held its own school-wide pink dress down day and the money was given to the volleyball team to add to the funds already raised. But they didn’t stop there…. On Tuesday, October 13, the volleyball team held a second Pink Out game to raise more funds for this cause. Between both “Pink Out” volleyball games and the dress down day, PMA was able to raise over $xxx.
The money will be donated to support Breast Cancer research and also to the Anne Shields Memorial Scholarship Fund. Anne Shields was a teacher at PMA for many years and lost her battle with cancer eight years ago. The “Pink Out” helped the volleyball team pay tribute to her memory and honor those who battle this disease every day.
PMA Panthers are proud to “think pink” and encourage everyone to “Pink Out” in support of breast cancer research.
