At half-time, the Cowden-Herrick High School cheerleaders put on a mystifying light show, which included a tribute to survivors of breast cancer.
The Guns and Hoses were playing for the Vickie Wagner Breast Cancer Assistance Fund, administered by Shelby Memorial Hospital to provide for those fighting breast cancer.
“Unlike other funds, said Glenda Plunkett of SMH, “these funds are only applicable to Shelby County women diagnosed with breast cancer. It is for out-of-pocket expences.”
The T-shirts and breast cancer bracelets were hot items.
‘We only had about five bracelets left out of 150,” Thompson said. “We only had about 30 black T-shirts with pink lettering left. We are still selling them for $10.”
With the 2nd Annual Guns and Hoses Charity Game a success, what about next year?
“We are going to do it again and we will playing to raise money for to fight cystic fibrosis,” Thompson said. “It will be the same time of year, but we haven’t set the date yet.”
