HSHS Holy Family Hospital raised $886.00 in proceeds from the 7th Annual Pink Bowl, an annual football game between the Greenville Comets and Vandalia Vandals. This year, the funds raised from the t-shirt sales, were donated to the Lemuel Rhodes Cancer Foundation.

For the last seven years, Holy Family has sold Pink Bowl themed t-shirts to hospital colleagues, high school students and community members prior and during the game. They have also provided pink armbands to the football players, t-shirts to the cheerleaders and donated pink mini frisbees to be thrown out during half time to raise awareness for breast cancer.

“It really is a fun event we look forward to each year, and we are happy to be able to donate the proceeds to a local foundation, said Angie Tovar, executive assistant to the president and CEO at HSHS Holy Family.
