Campbellsville High School is working to raise money to help find a cure for cancer.
There will be several special activities on Tuesday, Feb. 14, to help raise money for the American Cancer Society and have a little fun, too.
That evening, the CHS girls’ and boys’ varsity basketball teams will play Green County, starting with the girls’ game at 6 p.m. in the CHS gym.
Before the game, ACS representatives will be in the gym selling chances to win a Couch Potato raffle, which will give a lucky winner a front row seat and a waiter for the ball game.
Chances will be sold for $1 each. A winning ticket will be drawn before the girls’ game, and again before the boys’ game.
The winner, along with two to three of his or her friends or family members, will get the opportunity to watch the game from the floor, while sitting comfortably on a couch. And, the winner will receive a free pizza and soft drink to enjoy while watching the game.
A winner will be chosen to watch the girls’ game, and then another winner will be chosen for the boys’ game.
During half-time of the girls’ and boys’ games, CHS basketball coaches and players will battle it out in a Sneaker Scramble.
Five players and five coaches will take off their shoes and place them in a pile at center court. Each team will send a member to the pile to find their shoes and put them on. The first team to have all their shoes tied will receive prizes from the ACS.
During the night, Campbellsville Independent Schools’ employees who have battled or are currently battling cancer will be honored.
Senior basketball players on the boys’ team – including Micah Corley, Zack Bottoms, Darius Bell and Ricky Smith-Cecil – will be recognized before their game.
All night, ACS representatives will have a table set up to provide information about cancer research and the ACS and to accept donations to help find a cure for cancer.
All proceeds from the Couch Potato raffle, and any donations received, will benefit the Campbellsville Independent Schools Relay for Life team.
