Breast can­cer fundraiser

Dayton Daily News - - LOCALFOCUS - STAFF RE­PORT

Stu­dents at David H. Ponitz Ca­reer Tech High School are driv­ing home the im­por­tance of breast can­cer aware­ness.

Each year, stu­dents in the au­to­mo­tive path­way per­form lube, oil and fil­ter, and for 2018, a 21-point in­spec­tion. Each $22 pay­ment will be do­nated to the Norma Ross Youth Foun­da­tion and the Amer­i­can Can­cer So­ci­ety for the Norma Ross “Pink Rib­bon Driven” cam­paign. This means the DPS, young, scholar phi­lan­thropists, will be part of a drive to sup­port breast can­cer aware­ness.

Norma Ross’ hus­band Bob died un­ex­pect­edly in 1997. It was then she be­came pres­i­dent of Bob Ross Auto Group (Mer­cedes Benz, Fiat, GMC) in Cen­ter­ville, the largest African-Amer­i­can deal­er­ship in Ohio and one of the largest in the United States.

Mrs. Ross died in 2010 af­ter a bat­tle with breast can­cer.

The 2018 Ponitz cam­paign be­gins Mon­day, Oct. 15.
