Lady Phantoms vs Cancer fundraiser

The Lady Phantoms Proctor basketball team and their coaches, Chris and Lisa Hughes, will be teaming up with the Proctor Community to help in the fight against cancer.

They will be sponsoring a Lady Phantoms vs Cancer fundraiser at their home game against Woodstock on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 6:30pm.

The Coaches vs. Cancer is an official fundraising program founded by The American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

Each player and coach has been asked to get at least one sponsor for this event. The sponsor will donate 25 cents per point scored by both Proctor and Woodstock at this game.

The Proctor Sports Boosters have offered to donate their half of the 50/50 to the cause and the Proctor School Board has also offered to donate $1 of each admission price to The American Cancer Society.

Chris and Lisa Hughes feel this fundraising event will have a very positive influence on their Lady Phantoms - showing them, by example, how rewarding it is to raise contributions for such a worthy cause. "Our 'team' involvement in this event will prove to be a successful fundraising event for The Amercian Cancer Society, a positive learning experience for our Lady Phantoms, and a great way to 'unite' our team, our school and our community as a whole," they said.

Cancer does not discriminate, it affects all ages, statistics show that one in every three people will, at some point in their lives, be affected by some form of cancer.

The Lady Phantoms will be wearing Purple Warm Up Shirts in honor of this event. Attendees are also encouraged to wear purple to show your support for "Hope" in the fight against cancer.

If you would like to donate to this event, or sponsor a Lady Phantom or coach, you can call Chris and Lisa Hughes at 802.459.2175
