HONORING EVAN
• The Green and White will host its seventh annual EvvGirl Pink Game on Wednesday in honor of Evan Bard, sister of 2016 alumna Leisl Bard. Evan, whose favorite color was pink, lost her life in a drunk driving car crash in May 2013. Evan was a nursing student and cheerleader at Curry College, where she was studying to become a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) nurse. To honor Evan's memory, the EvvGirl Foundation is funding the NICU Webcam Project and Seize the Keys Drunk Driving Educational Program.
• The EvvGirl Foundation was formed to generate smiles and happiness by continuing Evan Bard's passions in nursing specifically for NICUs, pediatrics and maternity, as well as in early childhood education and cheerleading. Donations to the EvvGirl Foundation can be made online or at the game.
