October being breast cancer month,  East Hampton Youth Football and Cheerleading program held its first annual Breast Cancer Awareness Day last Sunday to benefit the Sandy Peszynski Breast Cancer Foundation.
On a crisp sunny day all the Hawks football players wore sharp pink socks and the cheerleaders held their pink pom poms high. Each of them also wore sharp pink cheer bows that read “Fight like a girl.”  
Almost 100 people, from fans to coaches, wore “Hope, Fight, Cure” shirts that were sponsored by local businesses and then sold to raise money for breast cancer research.  
Crafty Cakes and Cupcakes donated more than 100 pink velvet cupcakes to the event which were also sold to raise money for the cause.  With the generous support from fans and local businesses, more than $1,000 was raised for the Sandy Peszynski Breast Cancer Foundation, which the foundation uses locally. The East Hampton Youth Football and Cheerleading program hopes to make this an annual event.
