Lady Knights Raises $1,300 for Francine's Friends; Honors "Ms. Sue"
Every year "Ms. Sue" would remind Alice, Emilia and Gabrielle's mother, to have a mammogram done and her husband a prostate screening. Ms. Sue was a strong advocate of preventative measures as it pertained to breast cancer. Therefore, Emilia and Gabrielle decided to hold a Pink Out and donate the monies raised to go to Francine’s Friends.
"Tonight our Lady Knights are trading red for pink in honor of a dedicated women's basketball fan for Luers, Indiana Fever, and Purdue basketball. She was my neighbor for about 11 years and she was my second mom...when Ms. Sue passed away, I lost my best friend, my mentor, my mom, my coach, my cheerleader, my everything. While she was just one of many who had this disease, she was a wonderful woman and she left a huge mark on this world and sepecially on me. I love you, Ms. Sue."
