SCRANTON — Abington Heights High School recently held a contest for students to design the 11th annual Pink Game T-shirt.
The contest was coordinated by the Abington Heights High School Art Department, and was open to all art students, including Advanced Studio Art students and the Art Club. Seven T-shirt designs were submitted and voted on. The winning design was created by Abington Heights High School art student, Katie Seechock.
The T-shirts with the winning design will be sold throughout the month of January within Abington Heights and North Pocono school districts, on the Foundation for Cancer Care’s website and at the Pink Game on Thursday, Jan. 24. The Abington Heights Lady Comets will host the North Pocono Lady Trojans for this year’s game, and both teams will wear the T-shirts leading up to the game.
All proceeds raised from this year’s Pink Game T-shirt, as well as from the other fundraisers taking place leading up to and during this year’s Pink Game will stay local and benefit the Foundation for Cancer Care directly.
Last year, the Pink Game raised a record-breaking amount of more than $35,000 for the foundation.
The Foundation for Cancer Care provides free mammograms and breast cancer care to women without health insurance or with prohibitive insurance deductibles, along with nutritional services, financial support, psychological counseling and hope to women with breast cancer.
