DSC Puts the PINK on 

As we bring closure to Daytona State "Puts the PINK ON" celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness, I have been overwhelmed with the support and volunteerism exhibited during this event. Daytona State has not only opened their pockets with monetary contributions but opened their hearts to truly share the endeavor of raising awareness.


I want to thank each and every staff member that worked so diligently throughout the month; from the beautiful decorations to the delicious baked goods, it was obvious to all that participated that each and every one of you put a great deal of time and effort into making this a successful event. To all those that sold pins, candy apples, pink fans as well as the students clubs and student employees that assisted with the bake sales, many thanks to each of you.


I particularly want to give a special THANKS to my Regional Campus Coordinators that planned this event and all the activities along with the Daytona Beach Campus to truly make this a college-wide activity : Daytona Beach - Charlene Latimer Beverly Gibson and Ashley Robbins, DeLand - Charlotte Wright and Bernice Ruiz-Quiros, Deltona - Shirley Klein and Victor Ramos, New Smyrna Beach-Edgewater - Lisa Crabtree and Melinda Hamilton, Flagler/Palm Coast - Audrey Pingshaw and ATC- Linda Sullivan - it was such a pleasure to work with you, kudos to a phenomenal job.


For those who did not attend the PINK PARTY and have asked about the winners of the PINK BASKETS, and the winners were:


Silvia Solar, Barbara Fyock, Diane Hammond and a DSC student attending the New Smyrna Beach-Edgewater Campus.


It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce that we not only exceeded last year's fundraiser amount of $1,400 by a small percentage, but we more than doubled that amount.


Our donation to the Lee Denim Day Foundation is $1,107 and to the Foundation of Florida Hospital for uninsured women of Volusia /Flagler Counties is $2,070 for a grand total of $3,177.


On behalf of the Daytona State chapter of Association of Florida Colleges - many thanks to all involved.
