POTTSTOWN PA – Whether you’re in love with the shade or not, pink should be your favorite color tonight (Friday, Oct. 4, 2013) at Pottsgrove High School stadium.
Normally clad only in maroon-and-white, the Pottsgrove Falcons’ football team, cheerleaders, support staff, student cheering section, and likely dozens of fans will be decked out in pink – in any range from subtle and soft to screaming and hot – as the school conducts its annual Pink Out Night to heighten cancer awareness and raise funds for cancer prevention and treatment.
The team will play the Owen J. Roberts High “Wildcats” in an anticipated PAC-10 match-up that starts at 7 p.m. Leading the Falcons’ charge will be honorary captain and bone cancer survivor Kristen Lawhorne, a Pottsgrove sophomore. She is the subject of a feature article today in the Pottstown (PA) Mercury newspaper, here.
Additionally, the night serves to promote Pottsgrove’s award-winning high school marching band. Some of its members – those from Pottsgrove Middle School whose talents have moved them up the musical ladder of success – will be honored during half-time activities for the band’s annual Step-Up Night.
Team members will wear pink jerseys and socks. Band members will wear pink plumes and ribbons. Cheerleaders will be sporting pink pom-poms and hair ribbons. You get the idea?
Stadium visitors can get in on the fun, too. The school’s National Honor Society chapter will sell pink T-shirts. The sports Booster Club’s merchandise will include some pink Falcon gear. The Falcon Football Club will sell pink pom-poms and beads too. Proceeds from some of the sales, and donations collected at the gate and from throughout the stadium, will benefit the Cancer Patient Center at Phoenixville Hospital.
