Pink-Out Preparations

As October quickly approaches, the St. Dominic community begins to prepare for their annual pink-out football game. Like past years, the Christ Renews US and Outreach Club continue to take on the job of decorating the stadium, creating spirit wear, and preparing the bake sale, all while raising awareness for breast cancer. 

Although the big game is a couple weeks away, CRU has already begun preparing by creating the popular pink-out shirt designs. 

“The pink out shirts are designed by the leadership team of CRU. They decide the shade of pink and the design on the shirt,” Mrs. Debbie Johnson said. 

While the game is usually super hectic, many students overlook the stadium’s decorations the night of the game. Members of CRU hang streamers, make banners, and use pink flowers to make the stadium even more beautiful under the lights.

“During empower hour, my friends and I decorated banners. We had fun doing it, and look forward to decorating the whole stadium,” Junior Sophie Belz said. 

Similar to CRU, members of the outreach club provide baked goods for the bake sale. In the past, the Outreach Club has raised $300 from the annual bake sale alone. 

“This year I signed up to make cupcakes and even volunteered to work the sale. It’s for a good cause so I look forward to helping,” Junior Ava Gandolfo said. 

Almost all students and faculty in the Dominic community participate in the pink-out tradition. Whether it be attending the game, buying a shirt, or purchasing a baked good, our community makes sure to raise good profits for breast cancer awareness. 

“It’s great to donate in whatever way possible. Supporting breast cancer awareness is so important, and the Dominic community does a great job doing so,” Belz said. 

Dominic’s annual pink out game takes place on October 6th against the Duchesne Pioneers. Come out to support both the Crusaders and breast cancer patients, but make sure you wear pink!
