The game is sure to be a “full house,” as back-to-back games featuring the varsity boys at 5:30 p.m. followed by the varsity girls at 7 p.m. attempt to “Pink Out” the Medomak Valley High School gymnasium.
For these special games, both of the Medomak Valley teams will be wearing unique, pink uniforms. Additionally, commemorative T-shirts will be available for students and fans of both schools to purchase leading up to the game, and on the evening of the games as well.
In addition to T-shirt sales, other fundraising will be taking place prior to, and during the game as well as an opportunity to add your Personalized Pink Paw to the wall for a $1 donation. The evening’s 50/50 drawing and all other proceeds will go to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition, a volunteer-based, non-profit organization, dedicated to making a difference in Maine people through advocacy, education, and financial support. “We’d also like to thank our guests from Lincoln Academy not only for participating in the night, but also for supporting our endeavor as well,” added Matt Lash, MVHS Athletic Director.
“This will truly be a memorable evening for all, as everyone has been impacted by cancer in some way,” said Michelle DePatsy, Boosters President. “We hope to see a full house on January 2, and everyone is encouraged to wear pink!”

Personalized pink paw to add to the wall for a $1 donation:
During this past October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Maine Staffing Group invited their flaggers in Maine and New Hampshire to participate in a Pink Hard Hat fundraising campaign. All proceeds from the campaign were matched by Project Flagging and were donated to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition in Sharon’s name. All flaggers received a pink hard hat to wear for the month of October to show their support.
Maine Breast Cancer Coalition is grateful for the generosity of Maine Staffing Group and all of the flaggers who took part in the Project Flagging Pink Hard Hat campaign. Our hearts go out to Sharon Burns’s family and friends. We are honored to accept the $5,000 donation to our Support Service Fund in Sharon's name.

The students took part in a one-mile walk/run and collected pledges totaling $852.39! The Maine Breast Cancer Coalition volunteers who accepted the check were so impressed with these young people who raised such a big donation for our Support Service Fund. Read more here.
