Thanks to the generosity of the Broadalbin-Perth community during “Pink Week”, the B-P Sports Booster Club made a $3,044 donation to the American Cancer Society in memory of former B-P High School Principal Margaret Robin Blowers. This was B-P’s 10th annual event promoting cancer awareness. During that span, B-P has donated more than $40,000 to ACS.
The Sports Booster Club raised the money during all home boys and girls sports events during the week of Oct. 6-Oct.10. All proceeds from concession sales, 50/50 raffles, t-shirt sales, and a donation jar were collected.
Blowers, longtime principal at Broadalbin-Perth High School, passed away in August 2015 after fighting a courageous battle with breast cancer.
