Teams Face Off in ‘Pink Night’ Basketball Game


SCRANTON — Two girls basketball teams hit the court in Scranton to raise money for the fight against breast cancer on Saturday.

The girls from Abington Heights and Scranton Prep faced off in the 6th Annual Pink Night Basketball Game in Prep’s gym in Lackawanna County.

Players, coaches and fans were decked out in all shades of pink to show their support for those battling the disease.

Money raised from the game goes to the Foundation for Cancer Care, which helps local cancer patients with a variety of services, including counseling, transportation and more.

Officials with the foundation say they were thrilled with the outcome.

“Its very touching because one thing about Northeast Pennsylvania, they will always get behind you and support you,” said organizer Margot Opsasnick.

    My son recently asked me to buy him pink shoe laces, seems the kids in his school wanted to “do something” for breast cancer. I told him rather than wear pink, that he should study hard, become a research scientist and really do something. He took my comment seriously, I hope.
