Donna Pedersen

The Beacon High School boys’ and girls’ basketball teams will be holding a “Pink Out” fundraiser on Friday, Jan. 12, to remember former Beacon City School District nurse Donna Pedersen, who died of cancer on Dec. 4 at age 46.

There will be halftime performances, a concession stand and a presentation to the Pedersen family during halftime of the boys’ game against Lourdes, which begins at 6:15 p.m.

The girls’ team will play James O’Neill High School at 4:15 p.m. isn the first game of the doubleheader.

A $5 donation will be requested at the door to benefit the Pedersen family. Pink shirts also will be on sale for $12. To reserve your size, email Claire Vigna at vigna.c@beaconk12.org.
