The evening was a great success. The gym was decked out with pink camouflage ribbons following the theme, "Battle Against Breast Cancer". There were a number of opportunities to win prizes. Thank you to the many folks who attended the game. And thank you to the folks and businesses who donated prizes. The proceeds will remain in our community helping those who are in need.
