An online bucket raffle is being conducted this year for the 11th Annual Pink Out, a local effort to raise funds for the fight against cancer.
The New Holstein High School (NHHS) basketball and cheerleading squads help coordinate Pink Out.
This year’s donations will help serve New Holstein resident Heather Sabish and possibly others. Sabish is currently on leave from Kwik Trip and is the daughter of longtime New Holstein High School staff member Sheila Roepcke. Heather is currently battling cancer. She is the mother of Athly (NHHS ‘14), Lorena (NHHS ‘17), Jordana (NHHS ‘20), and Deanna (Kiel High School ‘15).
Requests to add others to the recipient list will be considered. Consult a personal tax attorney for tax deductibility as Breast Health Awareness LLC is a 501c organization.
Raffle items are being accepted and are preferred by Jan. 15. The raffle will run until Feb. 3.
Pink Out was created in 2010 by then New Holstein High School junior Naomi Stevenson following her mother Amy Jo’s successful battle with breast cancer. She was on a quest to eliminate breast cancer and to provide a hand up to those burdened with the challenge of battling cancer.
Donations for the online bucket raffle or, as always, cash donations are welcome. Items can be goods and services or gift cards. Please drop donations off at Shirts n Giggles at 2235 Wisconsin Ave. in New Holstein for photographing and immediate addition to the online bucket raffle. They will store donations and handle their distribution at the closing of the raffle. They also will be happy to pick up donations.
The Pink Out organization will support donations by providing positive recognition on social media, the local newspaper, and other channels.
Any questions should be directed to Shirts n Giggles in New Holstein at 898-5726 or any member of the New Holstein girls basketball and cheerleading squads.
