MICHIGAN CITY — For Halloween this year, pink became the new orange at Pine Elementary School.

The school’s Student Council hosted a special Wear Pink fundraiser on Oct. 31 for sixth-grade teacher Iris Curbelo, who is battling breast cancer while pregnant with her fourth child. To wear pink, each student paid $1, with all the money collected being donated to Curbelo and her family.
