As I said earlier, tonight’s a big night of basketball. There’s plenty to highlight, with one event being the BCANY and WCBA’s Coaches vs. Cancer Week Tip-Off at Brewster High School. As you can see below, the three-game slate kicks off with Fox Lane and John Jay at 5, followed by Saunders and North Salem and Brewster and Gorton.
The coaches associations do an excellent job with Coaches vs. Cancer events. It’s an initiative picked up a few years ago by the BCANY. Around this time every year, you’ll see high school and college coaches parade the sidelines in suits and sneakers to help draw attention to the cause. Last year, Gorton and Sacred Heart played a game where even fans dropped off their sneakers at the door and had to donate a dollar to retrieve them. Every little bit helps, and events like the one tonight go a long way in raising money for a good cause.
Everyone knows someone who has been affected by the disease. So, if you’re out at a Coaches vs. Cancer event around the area over the next week or so, be sure to chip it. The coaches begin their push tonight to raise money.
As for tonight, check out my Mount Vernon updates tonight, either here or on Twitter. I’ll also pass along whatever updates I come across, but be sure to add yours as the night goes along in the comments section of this post. Enjoy your Friday!
