Good Morning,

Last call for anyone looking to join in on PINK OUT and support Bunnell High School is kicking off a fundraising campaign with ALL t-shirt sale proceeds going to the Norma Pfriem Breast Center @ Bridgeport Hospital for breast cancer research and awareness.

Fundraising T-shirts can be purchased online:

T-shirts will be delivered to Bunnell on or around 10/12 for Pink Out Week here at Bunnell High School. Our cancer awareness week will culminate with the Pink Out Football game on 10/15 @ 7pm vs. Newtown High School. Anyone that buys a t-shirt and wears/brings it with them to the 10/15/21 game will receive free admission to the football game.

Please help us support a great cause by either purchasing a t-shirt or making a donation. Any amount is greatly appreciated.



Thank you!

J. Miller
