Second Annual “Paws for the Cause” Basketball Games to Benefit Maine Breast Cancer Coalition

Waldoboro December 2018 Press Release 
The Medomak Valley High School Athletic Department, in conjunction with the Medomak Valley All Sports Boosters is proud to announce the Second Annual “Paws for the Cause” basketball game to benefit the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition. The event will be held on January 2, 2019, at Medomak Valley High School, when the Medomak Valley Panthers play host to the Lincoln Academy Eagles.  

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.”
