LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Central Catholic baseball and softball hosted a very special doubleheader Wednesday evening to honor one of the Knights' family members who's fighting leukemia.
The Knights' school colors are blue and white but tonight they broke out the orange to support Patrick Mackey who's a senior at the high school.
Mackey is undergoing treatment for leukemia and was a co-captain and a starting offensive lineman for Head Coach Kevin O'Shea and Central Catholic's state championship football team this past season.
Money was raised for the Mackey family during the baseball-softball doubleheader in their fight against leukemia.
Orange, which is the awareness color for leukemia, was available in ice cream and soft drinks at the concession stand tonight, as were orange wrist bands with the inscription, "no one fights alone".
Inventions were built by Purdue mechanical engineering students for a final class project.
U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly has traveled around the state throughout the week talking with workers at automotive plants.
A man wanted for burglary and theft has been found thanks to an anonymous tip.
