Pink is the correct color tonight

If you want to be “with it,” you need to wear pink to tonight’s (Thursday) basketball games between Chase County Schools (CCS) and Perkins County Schools. The two will face their third annual Pink Out game in support of cancer survivors and research.
Students are also asked to wear crazy ties, belts and hats to the games, as well as the color pink.
Pink Out t-shirts are being sold by FFA members from both schools. At CCS students are selling the $10 shirts before and after school. The T-shirts will also be sold during the games tonight.
All proceeds from the Imperial FFA chapter’s sales go to the Chase County Hospital Foundation’s Cancer Fund. All proceeds from the Grant FFA chapter’s sales will benefit the Cattlemen’s Ball “Trail to a Cure.”
In addition, raffle tickets are being sold for blankets made from last year’s t-shirts. Tickets, available from FFA members, are $1 apiece, six for $5 or 12 for $10.
For more information contact FFA sponsors Jason Speck or Jeremy Vlasin at (308) 882-4304.
The public will have a chance to show support for the John Sieperda family during a pancake feed at CCS before the basketball games Thursday night.
The Imperial Education Association is sponsoring the breakfast in the evening beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the commons area.
Proceeds from the free-will offering will go to the Sieperda’s medical expenses. John Sieperda is undergoing treatment for a recurrent cancer.
