Contrary to some social media posts recently, the Cancer Council of Reno County has not released the final numbers for its fundraiser last weekend, but there are some good numbers for the impact of the annual Pink Out Night over its history, as they look forward to another edition this weekend.
"They've probably raised for us about $68,000 over the last eight years," said Sandy Woodson with the Cancer Council of Reno County. "This is our ninth year. Next year will be our tenth year, which will be a big anniversary for us for doing this. Those numbers are phenomenal to help patients in what we do in Reno County and help their families fight cancer."
HutchCC Assistant Athletic Director Steve Kappenman is excited about Saturday night.
"We couldn't do it without Midwest Superstore purchasing the shirts, designing the shirts and just supporting us all the way," Kappenman said. "We really look forward to this every year. We have a great matchup against a Colby team that beat us out there. We definitely need to get them back."
Midwest Superstore's Brian Bobo is excited to partner on a white shirt for the event this year.
"I'm looking forward to this shirt," Bobo said. "My wife designed it, so it better do well or I'm going to be in trouble. We're going to sell a bunch of T-shirts. It's just a suggested donation of $10. You can buy them at my store, or you can get them at the Athletic Department at the Sports Arena on the second floor."
Doors will open at 5 p.m. Saturday, with the women's game at 5:30 p.m. and the men's game to follow.
