Two schools. One cause.
Auburn and Auburn Mountainview high school students joined community supporters in a Pink Out tailgate party to beat breast cancer on Friday.
The event prior to the rivalry football game in the parking lot across Auburn Memorial Stadium raised proceeds for the American Cancer Society in recognition of national Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The goal is to raise $5,000 for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and Relay For Life efforts.
Student donned pink of many descriptions. Some wore T-shirts: “Tackling Cancer 2017. Two Teams. One Dream. Auburn vs. Auburn Mountainview.
There were food and games, music and dancing and an appearance by the Valley Regional Fire Authority and its towering bucket ladder truck.
