For one evening, these Franklin County rival schools join forces to raise funds toward the continued fight against cancer. The Pink Zone night also serves as a showcase of the athletic talents of the two schools’ dance, cheerleading, and girls’ basketball teams.
This year was the best yet! The games were exciting with a spirited full-capacity crowd and the Richard A. Brown gymnasium awash with a sea of pink shirts, beads, hats, and other accessories.
Additionally, the evening provided an opportunity to see the JV and Varsity players of tomorrow.
The Fairfax/Fletcher grades 3/4 girls basketball team played an extremely exciting halftime scrimmage, engaging not only the crowd but also their own role model high school players who were thrilled to cheer on the future of BFA Fairfax girls basketball.
Through the sales of pink beads, baked goods, game admission and 50/50 raffles, this annual event has raised thousands of dollars for the University of Vermont Cancer Center.
As always, win or lose, the most important takeaway from the event is that when it comes to a great cause, we are all #oneteam.
Best of luck to both schools and communities during the remainder of their winter seasons!
