Area schools plan breast cancer fundraiser

December 4, 2008

The week of Dec. 15-19, Bonner Springs High School and Turner High School will conduct the “Coming Together for a Cure” fundraiser to raise money for the KU Breast Cancer Research Center.

The schools will play basketball on Dec. 19, at BSHS, and both schools will hold activities throughout the week to raise funds. During the basketball game, the KU Breast Cancer Research Center will have a booth to pass out information to raise awareness of breast cancer.

The biggest portion of the fundraiser will be selling pink “Coming Together for a Cure” T-shirts. The goal is to turn the home crowd “Orange Crush” into “Pink Crush” for the night.

T-shirts will be on sale throughout the week of Dec. 15-19 for $7. All proceeds will benefit the KU Breast Cancer Research Center. Those wearing the shirts to the game will receive $2 off the cost of admission.
