Camas, WA — The annual Hoops for Pink basketball game and fundraiser begins Friday afternoon at 3:45 (for Junior Varsity) and continues on at 5:30 for Boys Varsity and at 7 for Girls Varsity. All events are at Camas High School.
Camas will host Battle Ground.
The annual event raises money for the Kay Yow Foundation, which earmarks funds toward fighting breast cancer. Money is raised by selling T-shirts and through raffles to purchased donated gift baskets.
Every year, the community has shown their support by packing The Warehouse and stepping up their donations to the worthy cause of fighting breast cancer.
The event has been a real success in past years.
Referrring to past Hoops for Pink fundraiser games, Nadine Knight, a parent volunteer who’s had several daughters play for Camas, said: “The event was a real success. We’re so grateful for the support of our community. Cheers to all of the businesses and individuals who donated for our baskets. Could NOT have done any of this without them. Thank you Camas for coming through again!”
A lot of behind-the-scenes efforts goes into the planning the fundraiser. Volunteers plan for months to prepare the gift baskets and solicit the donations from local businesses and inviduals.
