BAKING FOR A CAUSE: Princeton High School (PHS) sophomores Zoe Carril (center) and Emma Honoré (left) recently presented a check for $367.45 to YWCA Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC) Director Kara Stephenson (right). The money was raised through PHS’s Awareness of Breast Cancer (ABC) Club, which held two bake sales in January and February in response to BCRC’s “100 Women, 100 Ways, 100 Days” fundraising challenge. The project asked 100 local women to each raise, in innovative ways, $100 for BCRC. The resulting $10,000 will be used to provide local women affected by breast cancer with support groups, counseling, wigs and prostheses, wellness classes, financial assistance, and more.
