Pink Out, Breakfast and Silent Auction a Success
Feb. 2, 2010
CORVALLIS - The 'Pink Out' Breakfast and Silent Auction continues to grow in its third year as the Oregon State gymnastics program helps to raise money and awareness for breast and cervical cancer. Last Saturday, the 10.0 Club, OSU gymnastics' booster club, hosted the third annual event raising over $9,000 with the proceeds benefitting The Corvallis Clinic's Project H.E.R. (Help. Enlightenment. Resources.).
The breakfast and silent auction drew more than 180 supporters, who bid on a variety of items donated by local businesses and individuals.
Judy Corwin from The Corvallis Clinic spoke on behalf of the event's sponsor and introduced guest speakers Cecilia Stubblefield and Melissa Klumph. Stubblefield, a volunteer for Project H.E.R., discussed the charity that the Pink Out proceeds went to benefit and Klumph, an OSU graduate and breast cancer survivor, talked about the importance of early detection and her battle with cancer.
The Pink Out gymnastics meet Friday night was also a rousing success with 6,143 fans arriving to support the Beavers, who defeated then-No. 5 Stanford, 196.225-195.775. The crowd was the largest for a regular season meet since Feb. 7, 1997, when OSU hosted a dual with Utah in front of 7,583 fans.
The Beavers travel to the Bay Area this week to face California Sunday at 2 p.m. Oregon State returns to Corvallis the following week to host Arizona Friday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. at legendary Gill Coliseum.
