Each year, the Montville girls’ basketball team selects a home game to fundraise and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer.
The 2017-18 PINK GAME was played on Monday, 2/12 vs. Pope John, where the donations at the door went to the American Cancer Society. Funds raised from our
SHOOT-A-THON went to a Montville family in need. And money collected from our first round MCT game went to the family of a Morris County basketball coach who recently passed. Funds raised this year totaled $884!
In 2016-17, we focused our efforts on both helping a Montville family in need and again donating to the American Cancer Society. We ended up raising $840 in SHOOT-A-THON money for the Montville family in need, and $550 in PINK GAME (played on 2/17 vs. Morris Knolls) donations for the American Cancer Society. The $1,390 ups our program’s grand total of money fundraised to $8,780!
The 2015-16 PINK GAME was on Friday, 2/5 vs. Whippany Park. From donations at the door, gathering sponsors for our players’ SHOOT-A-THON, and receiving donations from Robert R. Lazar Middle School’s teachers we raised a total of $1,290 in the 2015-16 season.
The 2014-15 PINK GAME was versus Mendham on Thursday, February 12, 2015 at 7:00PM at Montville HS. From the donations at the door, our shoot-a-thon, and our winter beanie sales, we raised over $1,700 the 2014-15 season to help fight and end this disease!
In the 2013-14 season, with the help of Lynn/Bussey's Robert R. Lazar Middle School advisory class, over $3,200 was raised for the American Cancer Society. That earned us 5th place nationally as a team in the Coaches vs. Cancer fundraising leaderboard!
In 2012-13, our inaugural “PINK GAME”, we raised $1,200. We are looking to beat those numbers each and every year. Please join us in the fight and donate to our team and help us save more lives!
