Big Pink/Big Blue Tops $10K Raised in 2013
May 14, 2013
Now in its fifth year, the Tompkins Cortland Community College “Big Pink” fundraiser has reached a significant milestone. The 2013 edition of the “Big Pink” see-saw marathon, which now also features the “Big Blue” dodgeball tournament, took in more than $10,000 for the first time. The 2013 fundraising total was $10,449, bringing the five-year total to $35,625 raised. All the money raised goes to The Cancer Services Program of Cortland and Tompkins Counties.
The 2013 editions of “Big Pink” and “Big Blue” were held on April 5. This was the first time the single-year fundraising total had topped $10,000. The previous best year was 2012, with $8,531 raised.
As has been the case each year, the events were supported by Tompkins Cortland students, staff, alums, and community members. “Big Pink” and “Big Blue” are organized by the College Entertainment Board.
