TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A local group works year-round to support women fighting breast cancer.

On Thursday, PINK of Terre Haute got a little help of its own.

The Red Barn at Sycamore Farm went "PINK" for a fundraiser.

There was a dinner and silent auction.

Two Terre Haute North students put the event together for their DECA project.

"I think it was a lot of hard work. And I think it's all paid off. Everyone in the community was supportive of what we've done...and we're thankful for that support. I just think we couldn't have chosen a more deserving cause to do it for," Junior Mary Gatrell said.

Gatrell and her partner, Jenna Burd raised more than $10,000 for PINK of Terre Haute.
