BELMONT—South Point and North Gaston High Schools came together during the volleyball season to support those in their communities fighting breast cancer, designating a “PINK OUT” day.
Students showed their support by wearing pink and attending volleyball games to help raise money for Cancer Services of Gaston County to help those affected by breast cancer.
Volleyball players sold one-dollar raffle tickets for a chance to win $250 in cash and gift certificates to local businesses. The South Point volleyball team sold t-shirts for students to wear on PINK OUT day.
During the actual day of the volleyball match between the two schools, those in the community were able to stop by the high school to receive a mammogram from the CaroMont mammography bus. Then that evening the South Point Red Raiders volleyball team played the North Gaston Wildcats, with admission a five-dollar donation to Cancer Services of Gaston County.
This year with t-shirt sales, raffle tickets and admission donations, the players and faculty from both teams raised $3,605 for Cancer Services of Gaston County.
Our congratulations to these two schools for their efforts and our thanks for the information that was provided.
