HAFTR middle and high school students joined Sharsheret last Wednesday for the school’s annual Pink Day to support breast cancer awareness and raise money for this important organization.
In the middle school, students had the opportunity to ditch school uniforms for a day, dressing in their Pink Day best in exchange for a $2 donation.
Pink donuts were sponsored by Molly Klein and family in honor of Molly’s Aunt Lisa Altman a”h.
Proceeds from the donut sale — along with the sale of pink lemonade, Pink Day Challah, special shirts from Make It, and raffle tickets for prizes donated by Clementine, Kiss & MakeUp, Mike’s Burgers, Jus by Julie, and H2O — were donated to Sharsheret.
HAFTR HS welcomed Rebecca Cohen (in center of picture), Long Island Outreach Coordinator for Sharsheret. She presented a moving video of breast cancer survivors and described how Sharsheret has helped many people in the community.
