Pink Out Night Thanks

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

On behalf of the Okoboji High School Athletic Department, I would just like to say thank-you to everyone that participated in our recent Breast Cancer Awareness Night event during our 9/JV/Varsity volleyball matches against Boyden-Hull on Tuesday, Oct. 13. We are very thankful of the people that bought our pink "serving up awareness" T-shirts as well as those that attended the tailgate and volleyball matches. Because of your support of this cause, the OHS Athletic Department is very proud to be able to donate proceeds of this event in the amount of $1,465.79 to the American Cancer Society.

A special thanks to all our sponsors because, without their help, we would not have been able to do this event; Lakes Regional Healthcare, Piccadilly's, Farner-Bocken, Buy Rite Foods, Perkins Restaurant & Bakery, Northwest Bank, CC Screenprinting, the Lakes News Shopper, and the Okoboji Booster Club.
