The Medomak Valley Panthers played host to the Lincoln Academy Eagles. Back-to-back “Pink Out” games featured the varsity girls followed by the varsity boys. For these special games, both of the Medomak Valley teams wore unique, pink uniforms. Besides hosting girls’ and boys’ “bring out the pink" basketball games, they also sold Pink Paw cards, and held a 50/50 raffle and t-shirt sale.
The fundraiser raised an amazing $7,000 for the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition's Support Service Fund and surpassed last year’s
total of $6,500.
“The check was presented in honor of Medomak Valley High School teacher Elizabeth Bianchi, who currently is in treatment,” said John Murphy, who, along with wife, Gayle, a breast cancer survivor, helped purchase pink uniforms worn by Panther players for the games.
All of us at Maine Breast Cancer Coalition want to thank all the athletes, their parents, coaches, the booster organizers and all the other volunteers who made this event possible!
