HATTIEVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) -- In an effort to support breast cancer research, the Wonderview School District in Hattievillewent pink Tuesday night.

It is the time of year when all of Hattieville can usually be found at every home game for the Wonderview Dare Devils.

Tuesday marked the school's first home basketball game of the season and a group of Wonderview High School students used the big crowd to make a big difference.

"First of school started until probably about a week ago, we had this all planned out and we got it all together and here it is," says EAST Lab student, Morgan Raper. "Tonight we are trying to raise more money to go towards the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure," says her classmate, Shelbi Haney.

It is a campaign they call "Paint Wonderview Pink", bringing awareness to breast cancer in their community. The 8th period EAST Lab students sold pink "Dare to be Aware" t-shirts and asked everyone to wear pink to their first home game of the season. It worked.

"We knew through basketball, we could get all of our community involved so we said for everyone to wear them to our first home game which is tonight and we had a big turn out with the sales," says Lakin Ward.

With Dare To Be Aware T-shirts and pink bracelets, the 8th period EAST Lab class hopes one color for one game will give everyone a piece of hope.

"We can make a difference," says Raper.

With t-shirt, bracelet and pink lemonade sales, the EAST Lab 8th period class raised just under $600 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Their opponents Tuesday night, the County Line Indians, participated as well wearing pink socks and headbands for the cause.
