They thought pink

Dear Editor:The Basalt High School volleyball teams would like to thank everyone that helped make our first Think Pink volleyball game and fundraiser such a success. At our home game against Aspen on Oct. 6, we raised more than $1,200 to contribute to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation!In addition to a great afternoon of volleyball, we held a pink bake sale, raffled off pink volleyballs, purchased pink warrior socks and had an information table on breast cancer awareness. We would like to thank everyone that attended and supported our day, baked and sold goodies and donated to the cause. We would particularly like to thank the following sponsors: Joseph Freed & Associates for donating 100 pink balloons, Red Eagle Roofing (Gregg Mackey), Colorado Poolscapes (Bill Toney), TRM Corp (Rick & Karen Miller), Aspen Floorcovering (Bill Rinaldi), Karen Toth, Colleen Sardinsky, the Booth/Lloyd families and the Nemiec family.Also, a big thank-you to Parker Booth and Andrew Morley for running the volleyball raffle, and to Basalt High School for donating one-half of the gate fees from the day. We hope to make this an annual event for a great cause!Carol NemiecBasalt High Schoolvolleyball team
