BV Basketball Event Raises Money for Cancer Research

This from BV Senior Women's Administrator Jennifer Thompson:

"We hosted our PINK Breast Cancer Event last Saturday evening at BVU and the SAAC students help me with this event.  I have attached some pictures of the activities at our event. We raised just over $2,000 for the WBCA Kay Yow Cancer Fund! Activities included:  a raffle of seven items, sales of snack mix, pink t-shirts, pink headbands and pink ribbon Tervis Tumblers, a silent auction of about 30 items, a best pink costume contest for BVU students (with prizes) and the BVU Dance Squad performed at both halftimes. Fans were all encouraged to wear pink to the game.  The women's team wore pink warm-up shirts and pink shoe laces, and the officials used their pink whistles."
