Pink Out!

It's time to order your Pink Out Shirt for the NGHS Annual Pink Out Game on
Friday, October 28th. For those of you who are new to NGHS, this is a huge
deal for our community. It is a time when we come together to celebrate not
just breast cancer survivors, but all cancer survivors. We have a special
reception for cancer survivors and we honor them at halftime of the
football game. We have some really special things planned for this year's
Pink Out, so I hope you and your family will join us!

How do I order my shirt(s)?
Just go through MyPaymentsPlus and choose the Community Events section.
(In anticipation of a colder October we are also offering a long sleeve
option this year!)
Orders are due by October 14th.
