Thank You We would like to thank everyone who helped last week with our efforts to raise money for the WINGS Cancer Foundation. Thank you to those who bought pre-sale tickets, decided to purchase a Live Pink T-Shirt, or just donated money outright. Between the three schools involved, we were able to write a check for $3500 to the WINGS Cancer Foundation. The money will certainly be going to a great cause, and thank you again for however you may have helped.
