‘Trojans vs. Cancer’ night on tap
Fairfield High School will be holding its fourth annual “Trojans vs. Cancer” night Jan. 24 as part of the girls/boys basketball double-header vs. Iowa City Regina.
A fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, “Trojans vs. Cancer” will consist of several activities ranging from a soup supper to duck toss.
The soup supper, sponsored by the FHS Student Council, will begin prior to the varsity contests. Cost will be by freewill donation.
Tickets are being sold for a 50/50 raffle, as are plastic ducks for the duck toss competition. Winners of the raffle will be announced during the games.
A 48-second drill fundraiser has been planned, and a portion of the gate proceeds will go toward the cause, as well.
All fans are encouraged to wear pink for the “Pink Out” theme. The varsity girls will be donning their once-a-year pink uniforms, while the boys’ team will be in pink warm-ups.
“Our past events have been very successful, and with your support we hope to continue this tradition,” said FHS Activities Director Jeff Courtright. “Please join us for a fun evening, with the proceeds going to a great cause.”
Special “Trojans vs. Cancer” T-shirts are currently on sale to raise funds for the annual night. Orders for the shirts must be prepaid and turned into the FHS activities office by next Tuesday.
All money raised will help support the American Cancer Society’s efforts within the state. The local event is made possible in part through the support of presenting sponsor Community 1st Credit Union.
