“Pink Out” night for breast cancer awareness

Pink breast cancer awareness ribbonIn conjunction with Wednesday night’s home basketball game, Barton Community College will dedicate the night to “Pink Out” for breast cancer awareness.   Offering support and increasing awareness, the Barton Student Life Office has organized the evening’s events with informational and fundraising opportunities with all proceeds donated to the Barton Relay for Life team.  Fans are encouraged to wear pink as a show of support with a limited number of “Pink Out” themed t-shirts available for free distribution.  The Barton basketball teams will be hosting Hutchinson Community College with the women’s game beginning at 6:00 p.m. and the men scheduled to tip-off at approximately 8:00 p.m.  

The evening’s national anthem will be sung by the Central Plains High School Choir while halftime performances will feature performances by the Barton Dance Team and the Stockton High School Dance Team.

Informational and fundraising booths are as follows:

  • Criminal Justice program:  Will be conducting a child identification booth collecting a child’s identifiable information allowing parents to take and store their child's information in their own home.  Small donation appreciated.
  • Community Service Organization and Phi Theta Kappa (student organizations) will be selling pink and silver breast cancer ribbon beads, remembrance ribbons, suckers, and cougar themed mouse pads.
  • Nursing will be distributing information regarding breast cancer and selling baked good for fundraising
  • Quilt raffle:  Donations accepted for chance to win a quilt donated by Lois Dean.  Drawing will actually be held at Barton’s February 15th basketball game.
  • All popcorn concession sales will be donated courtesy of the Barton men’s and women’s golf teams.
