The game is sure to once again this year, be a “full house,” as back-to-back games featuring the varsity girls at 5:30 p.m. followed by the varsity boys at 7 p.m. attempt to “Pink Out” the Medomak Valley High School gymnasium.
For these special games, both of the Medomak Valley teams will be wearing unique, pink uniforms. Additionally, commemorative T-shirts will be available for students and fans of both schools to purchase leading up to the game, and on the evening of the games as well.
In addition to T-shirt sales, other fundraising will be taking place prior to, and during the game as well as an opportunity to add your Personalized Pink Paw to the wall for a $1 donation. The evening’s 50/50 drawing and all other proceeds will go to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition, a volunteer based, non-profit organization, dedicated to making a difference in Maine people through advocacy, education, and financial support. “We’d also like to thank our guests from Lincoln Academy not only for participating in the night, but also once again this year, for supporting our endeavor as well,” added Matt Lash, MVHS Athletic Director.
“We’re excited to build upon the overwhelming success of last year’s
inaugural event,” said Gayle Murphy, Boosters President. “We raised $6,500.00
for Maine Breast Cancer coalition in front of a near sell-out crowd, and hope to improve
upon that this year.”
· “Paws for the Cause” will be held starting at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2019, to benefit the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition.
· The event includes back-to-back basketball games featuring the girls and boys varsity teams from Medomak Valley High School versus Lincoln Academy.
· The event will attempt to “Pink Out” the Medomak Valley High School gymnasium; special pink uniforms will be worn by Medomak Valley girls and boys players.
