Attention Wisconsin: Wear Yellow on May 11! Charles Woodson Mural will be Auctioned to Support Cancer Awareness

According to the American Cancer Society, half   of all men and one-third of all women in the U.S. will develop cancer during their lifetimes. To help combat this unsettling statistic, Preble High School students and faculty in the Sting Cancer group are taking action. To raise awareness on the impact of cancer and to support finding a cure, Sting Cancer is asking community members to support “Wear Yellow Day” at local workplaces, organizations and schools on Friday, May 11.

Wear Yellow Day – Friday, May 11

An idea that originated from Sting Cancer, Wear Yellow Day allows businesses and establishments in Wisconsin to show support by wearing yellow. Sting Cancer will accept any monetary donations, raffle and silent auction items, and will be selling yellow t-shirts. T-shirts may be ordered in bulk and will be delivered one week prior to Wear Yellow Day; otherwise they will be available for pick up at Preble High School, 2222 Deckner Avenue. T-shirts are $8, and will be on sale May 3, 4 and 7-10 from 3:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Preble.

For more information on the Sting Cancer group, sponsoring or donating to Wear Yellow Day, or purchasing t-shirts, contact Nick Nesvacil at nwnesvacil@gbaps.org. All proceeds from t-shirt sales will be used to purchase gas cards and gift cards for distribution in weekly gift baskets to current cancer patients.

Charles Woodson Mural Auction

To support the cause, Packers Fence Painter Christopher Handler will be auctioning off a painted and autographed mural of Packers’ cornerback Charles Woodson, and presenting it to the highest bidder on May 11. All proceeds will benefit Sting Cancer. To enter the auction, contact Christopher Handler at hdyman@thepackerfencepainter.com. In honor of Wear Yellow Day, Handler has also hung a “Wisconsin Wear Yellow” banner from the painted Packers fence, a memorable Green Bay landmark across from Lambeau Field. 

Sting Cancer History

Started by Preble faculty member and cancer survivor Nicholas Nesvacil in 2004, Sting Cancer has grown from a few students at Preble, to hundreds of students in 11 area schools. The group’s mission is to reduce the effects of cancer by initiating and supporting programs and activities for schools and the surrounding community.
