BCMS Softball Raises $230 at “Pink Out”
Breast cancer survivor Julie Hudnall throws out the first pitch.
The Butler County Middle School softball team hosted a “pink out” night last night against Grayson County in its last home game of the 2011 fall season.
The players wore pink socks, shoelaces, hair bows, and ribbon decals on their helmets to raise awareness about breast cancer. Team parents collected donations at the gate and concession stand, raffled off a Starbucks gift pack, and sold baked goods to raise money. Team members also ran the barrel throw in between games to raise funds. A total of $230 was raised from these events and will be donated to Butler County Cancer Assistance to assist patients who are battling breast cancer.
Breast cancer survivor Julie Hudnall threw out the ceremonial “first pitch.”
“This is something our parents and players really wanted to do and they did a great job organizing this event,” said BCMS Coach John Embry. “I’ve been especially impressed with how our young players have taken such an active interest in this worthy cause.”
