Central-East b-ball games to support Susan G. Komen





What: The annual match-ups between Cheyenne’s East High and Central High varsity basketball teams will be the “pink” games, which support the Wyoming Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

When: Saturday, Jan. 25. The girls’ game begins at 1 p.m.; the boys’ game begins at 2:45 p.m.

Where: Storey Gymnasium, 2810 House Ave., Cheyenne

More information: There will be various Susan G. Komen items available for sale at the game, including T-shirts, bracelets, shoelaces, bandanas, etc. For people who forget their pink but don’t want to spend a lot, last year’s race T-shirts and bandanas will be available with a donation.

This event will also feature a raffle for an iPad Mini, donated by the Butterfly Foundation, and a 50/50 raffle. Tickets will cost $1 each or six for $5.

The Wyoming Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure works to better the lives of those in the community who are facing breast cancer. The organization invests in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects through events such as the Komen Wyoming Race for the Cure.

Up to 75 percent of net proceeds generated by the Komen Wyoming Affiliate stays in Wyoming. The remainder goes to the national Susan G. Komen Grants Program for energizing science to find cures.
