Tonight, the West Carrollton Pirates will be hosting their 3rd annual Pink Out football game to raise money for the Pink Ladies Organization.

Everyone going to the game wears pink to support breast cancer awareness. NHS (National Honors Society) sells pink t-shirts and pink wrist bands for donations to the Pink Ladies Organization. In donations alone, WCHS has raised around $3,000 for the Pink Ladies. The Pink Ladies organization helps Breast Cancer patients and families emotionally, practically and financially.

NHS members are the main contributors in helping with this event. NHS sells pink t-shirts, scarves, wristbands, 50/50 tickets during the football game and helps organize a big tailgate before the game. Senior NHS  member Bailey Jenkins says, “I think it is a great way for everyone to come together and support such a good cause because the tradition has raised around $3,000 towards breast cancer research and support. Also it is a great way to bring our community together.”

English teacher Mrs. Mitchell and math teacher Ms. Wilson are the main directors of the Pink Out Game. Mrs. Mitchell said, “The game is an amazing opportunity to raise awareness and give back to our community. Especially since the money raised goes to people we know personally in our community.”

Staff, students and the people of West Carrollton love going to the game to support breast cancer awareness. Even if you do not like going to football games, please consider donating to the Pink Ladies Organization or talk to Ms. Mitchell or Ms. Wilson to find out more.
