The University of the Fraser Valley women's basketball team raised close to $3,400 at their inaugural 'Shoot for the Cure' breast cancer awareness fundraiser and silent auction recently at Finnegan's Pub.
"It was a special evening to kick off the Cascades' contribution to the 'Shoot for the Cure' fundraising drive," said head coach Al Tuchscherer.
"Alexa McCarthy and the team really stepped up their efforts and created a fantastic evening of food, fun and raising money for this outstanding cause.
"The team is proud to be part of such an important event that stretches right across the country and has been able to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years. It turned into a great event for our university and community and we look forward to building on the success of this event in the future," add Tuchscherer.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) Yukon/BC chapter.
