October is nationally known as Breast Cancer awareness month and the Lassiter community successfully came together to support the cause.
Lassiter’s DECA club sold pink out gear outside of the lunchroom all week leading up to the football pink out game. Boas, confetti cannons, t-shirts, beaded necklaces, and much more merchandise were sold. All of the proceeds from the merchandise were donated to the Turning Point Breast Cancer Rehabilitation Organization. With all of the sales made, the DECA club raised a total of $2,800 for the organization. A raffle for pink out gear was also held where students could pay $1 for a ticket and a chance to win a pink pair of converse.
Students showed up and showed out in their pink for Friday night lights to support breast cancer awareness and cheered on the football team for a big win, 38-35, against Sprayberry.
In other sports news, the Lassiter volleyball team also had a pink out theme for their last regular season game against Kennesaw Mountain on October 6th.
While most teenagers aren’t affected by breast cancer, the support shown by the Lassiter student body for the cause was outstanding.
