In honor of breast cancer awareness month and beloved cheer mom, Carole Yeager-Ellis, we made yesterday's practice a pinkout! To raise funds for breast cancer awareness, we sold PINK t-shirts (donated by Donna from Signature Specials), socks, bandannas, bracelets, key chains and ribbon pins. We also had candy, cupcakes, ribbon shaped pretzels (donated by Philly Pretzel Factory), and other snacks for sale!
While at practice, our athletes showed their support for breast cancer by wearing PINK! Many of them also donated at the fundraiser table, bought some pink merchandise, and entered to win the raffles we had displayed. The raffles included: a American Girl doll basket, a Bath & Body Works basket, and a Rock Your Hair bag with some of our favorite competition hair products!
By the end of the day, we were able to raise nearly $900 for breast cancer awareness!!
We would like to thank our devoted team moms for all of their hard work! As always, they did a wonderful job with the fundraising table and the coordination of this event!
Thank you Brandy Bowers (Diamonds team mom), LeeAnn Story (Platinum team mom), Lisa Martin (RS spirit wear), Lovlei McKinnie (Shining Starz team mom), and Kim Guido! We wouldn't have been able to pull it off without you!
In honor of breast cancer awareness month, and Casey and Alexa's mom, we dedicated yesterday's practice to their family. If you didn't get the chance to donate yet or were unable to make practice yesterday, donations for a scholarship fund for the girls will be accepted by club charge or credit card until Monday, October 31.
