On February 18 the Cazenovia varsity boys basketball team sponsored a Coaches vs. Cancer game during their scheduled basketball game with Jordan-Elbridge High School. The event, which took place in Cazenovia High School's Buckley Gymnasium, raised $1,400. The funds were donated to Coaches vs. Cancer in memory of Susan Gates.
The team sold Coaches vs. Cancer t-shirts during the 2-weeks leading up to the game. Any fan wearing the t-shirt to the game was admitted to the contest free of charge. Cazenovia players wore these t-shirts during the pregame warm-ups. The fundraising committee also raffled off prizes during the game and raised money at the concession stand.
The Coaches vs. Cancer organizers would like to thank the following people for their contributions to the event: Mrs. Karol Toole (t-shirts), the Cheerleading Team (chuck-a-duck proceeds), The Varsity Ice Hockey Team (donation), Lisa Schaffner (t-shirt sales and concessions), Syracuse University Basketball, Molly Gabor, Toggenburg Winter Sports Center and everyone who participated in the successful fundraising event.
Mike Byrnes is the Athletic Director for Cazenovia Central School District
