Coaches vs.

Please join the Burlington High School Basketball Program as it hosts a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society on Tuesday, February 14 at the Vanella Gym.

Coaches vs. Cancer Awareness Night is a collaborative initiative of the American Cancer Society and the BHS Basketball Program. This fundraiser empowers our coaches and teams to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The basketball games on Tuesday, February 14 will be in honor of loved ones lost and those who have survived and their care givers.

The event will begin on Monday evening when every member of the basketball program will receive purple Coaches vs. Cancer t-shirt during practice. We ask that each member wear the shirt to school on Tuesday and again during game warm ups to help promote the event and the cause. Although our freshmen teammates do not have a game on this day, we ask that you wear the shirt to the games you’re able to attend.

Beginning with the junior varsity games starting at 3:30, the team will be selling bracelets, lollipops and popcorn with all proceeds going to the cause.

With every paid admission into the varsity games (girls at 5:30, boys at 7:00), attendees will receive a free raffle ticket for the chance to win one of two $25 gift cards to True North. Additionally, the BHS Athletic Office will be donating $1 of the admission fee to the American Cancer Society.

A 50/50 raffle will also take place along with a separate raffle for the chance to win two tickets to an upcoming Bruins game.

All proceeds donated during the evening will be directed to Burlington’s Relay for Life event and will benefit the American Cancer Society.

Here’s how you can help!
