WEST HAVEN, Nov. 15, 2023 — (Pictured): Amanda Forst, left, and Mandy Hutchinson of Westies Nutrition at 153 Sawmill Road present a $207 check in support of the West Haven Breast Cancer Awareness Program on Monday, Nov. 13.
The money will benefit the program’s Susan A. Ruickoldt Scholarship Fund.
The fund was founded in March 2003 to raise breast cancer awareness in honor of Ruickoldt, who taught third grade at Savin Rock Community School before dying of breast cancer in 1997.
Each spring since 2003, scholarship organizers have awarded $2,000 in Ruickoldt’s memory to a female high school senior from West Haven who plans to continue her education.
