FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Westminster, Md. (November 28, 2012) — Members of the Winters Mill High School Athletic Boosters Club recently donated $1,000 to Carroll Hospital Center to support its services.
Club members, including students of Winters Mill High School, presented a check to Amy Zepp, Carroll Hospital Center’s annual fund manager, on November 13.
The money was raised during a special “Pink Out” fundraising event the club held in October leading up to a home football game between Winters Mill High School and their friendly rival Westminster High School on October 12. Club members sold pink t-shirts to students throughout the school and encouraged everyone to wear pink at the game to promote breast cancer awareness.
According to Heather Zophy, president of the Athletic Boosters Club, the fundraiser was extremely successful. Winters Mill High School had one of its largest attendance rates for a home football game and the stands were filled with students wearing pink in some form. Due to the tremendous response, Zophy says the club hopes to hold this event on an annual basis.
Carroll Hospital Center is a nonprofit, acute care facility offering the latest in medical technology, experienced medical professionals in a variety of specialties and a continuum of programs and services to meet the needs of the community.
