Our annual Officials vs Cancer Pink Whistle Week is January 25-30, 2016. All officials are encouraged to wear their pink whistles during their games during this week.
All officials are encouraged to make a donation to our Officials vs Cancer fund which goes directly to the American Cancer Society on behalf of the Denver Area 8 officials. Any amount is accepted, but the suggested donation is $40 per official. Please make your checks payable to “American Cancer Society” and write “CO Bd4, Denver Area 8” in the memo line. You may turn in your check at any meeting, to any of the area directors, to David Hirshman – our Cancer committee chairperson, or to Kevin Meador – our Denver Area 8 treasurer. All donations need to be turned in by February 15th. Remember, your donations go directly to the American Cancer Society and are tax deductible. The American Cancer society will send you a receipt for tax purposes.
Please contact David Hirshman directly if you would like a big pink whistle to gather donations at your games. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
