Orlando, FL – (Oct. 26, 2015) – The Orlando campus of Southern Technical College, “Southern Tech,” made a contribution recently to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Metro Orlando, which is part of the area’s American Cancer Society (ACS).
In total, $231 was donated to support the annual Pinktober campaign that culminates Saturday, Oct. 31 with a walk in downtown Orlando. The funds were raised during a “pink day” on the campus where everyone was encouraged to wear pink and learn about breast cancer.
