NOOA Pink Whistle Intiative

nooa-pinkYou may be seeing pink at local high school basketball games this week.

The Northern Ohio Officials Association will be using pink whistles at select games in the area January 23- January 29 to help raise cancer awareness. The NOOA is also collecting funds though the sales of pink whistles and donation. The money earned through the initiative will be donated to cancer research. So far, the campaign has raised over $800 to help fight cancer. The NOOA’s ultimate goal is to raise $2,000 dollars this year.

If you would like to help in the fight, the NOOA asks that you make checks payable to the American Cancer Society and send them to NOOA, PO Box 676, Berea, Ohio 44017.

Join the fight and help the NOOA “Call a Foul on Cancer!”
