May 8th, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — May 8, 2013
Rumson — The Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School clock tower will be awash
in pink lights and the school’s entrance will be sporting pink embellishments during the

taking place inside the school building are also at the heart of the RFH community’s
support for a very worthy cause.
Every year since 2006, May has been designated “Paint the Town Pink” month by

place at RFH from May 20 to 24.
For example, the Student Government Association is creating pink ribbon pins that
faculty members will wear to show their Pink Pride. The RFH Health Club will be selling
T-shirts and Pink Pride hats. Pink wristbands will be available for purchase thanks to the
efforts of the RFH Class of 2013. The Class of 2014 will participate as well by hosting a
Lastly, Riverview Medical Center is encouraging supporters to decorate their cars as
well as their homes and businesses during this year’s “Paint the Town Pink” initiative.
In response, the RFH Class of 2013 and members of the National Honor Society will be
hosting a Car Painting fundraiser in which RFH seniors can have their cars decorated
with washable markers.
All of the funds raised by the activities at RFH will be donated to Riverview Medical
Center’s “Paint the Town Pink” campaign.
