OLSH Pink Out Honors Community Members Affected by Breast Cancer

Each year, OLSH hosts a Pink Out football game to honor those in our community who have been affected by breast cancer. The cheerleading squad sells special T-shirts and hoodies, raffles off a Pink Out basket, and hosts a bake sale at the game. Proceeds from all Pink Out fundraising benefit the OLSH Susan Fahey Scholarship, which was established in memory of OLSH’s beloved Spanish teacher, Miss Susan Fahey, who passed away in 2010 at the age of 52 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. 

This year, the OLSH Interact Club got involved in the evening by selling luminaria bags that were displayed on the bleachers facing the crowd at the game. Club members wrote the names of loved ones to be honored on each bag. Interact President Evie and Treasurer Grace recited the names over the PA speaker at halftime, as the crowd paused for a moment of silence and the cheerleaders stood in the middle of the field with their pink pom poms in hand.

The halftime ceremony was dedicated to Regina Rossi, a dear friend of the OLSH Community who died from breast cancer earlier this year. Her husband, Jim Rosenwald '84, offered to match all additional donations (above the $5 per luminary) to the Susan Fahey Memorial Scholarship up to $1,000.

While the Chargers were faced with a tough loss that night, the evening was still a win for our community as it was a beautiful celebration of our loved ones
