“The Pembroke High School girls’ basketball team has broken their previous fund-raising record during their 10th annual “Shooting for a Cure!”
According to event organizers, the event Friday night has raised more than $37,000.
The event featured an outdoor food truck rally, as well as various raffles and auctions, in an effort to help raise money.
“Shooting for a Cure!” began 10 years ago when the team approached the head coach with an idea to show their support for Toni Funke, wife of coach and Pembroke teacher Ron Funke, in her battle against breast cancer. Organizers say although the event has grown, the goal remains the same: show support for community members in the fight against cancer.” — https://www.wkbw.com/news/local-news/shooting-for-a-cure-breaks-previous-fundraising-record
Over the course of the last year, we’ve spent countless hours putting this game together. Players, faculty, staff, administration, parents, and student / community volunteers put so much time into this event. I’d say it’s easily in the thousands of hours to make that event happen.
