Coaches vs. cancer

The first annual Breast Cancer Awareness Basketball Games will be held at Haldane Central Schools on Saturday Jan. 25.

The schedule of events begins when the Junior Varsity Boys’ basketball team plays at 10 a.m. vs. Millbrook. The Junior Varsity Girls’ basketball team will play at noon vs. Pawling. The Varsity Girls’ basketball team will play at 2 p.m. vs. Pawling, and the Varsity Boys’ basketball team will play at 4 p.m. vs. Yonkers Montessori. Special raffle drawings will be held for each of the basketball games, with some great vendors supporting the cause.

A concession stand will offer mini-meatball sliders, hot dogs, nachos, baked goods, and other edible options. The cost of admission is a donation. Athletes will also sell promotional cards before the event to raise funds. All profits will go to the American Cancer Society.

It will be a great community day and fundraiser – so bring the kids, parents and grandparents and have some fun with your local teams.
