They helped raised over $8,000.
The Pink SOCS held a benefit softball game to raise money to be used towards the Avon Walk this year. After a day full of teamwork and home runs the Pink SOCS took home over $1,500 towards cancer research.
To those we love and to those we’ve lost, one day we will find a cure to end this horrific disease. -Sandy Suroweic
