Hoops for Hope set for Monday at Lee Christian

Jan. 27, 2013 @ 05:01 AM

Lee Christian School will give its Second Annual Hoops for Hope Night a second shot Monday with a quadruple-header of basketball tipping off at 3:30 p.m.

Gate proceeds, concessions and money raised from special events during the night will go to the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. Last year's Hoops for Hope combined with Lee Christian's team at Relay for Life raised more than $3,500.

There will be a silent auction and players will be wearing pink warm-up shirts with the t-shirts available to purchase during Thursday night's games.

The centerpiece of the night is a survivor's recognition ceremony which will be between the varsity games. The girls' varsity game is slated for 6 p.m. and the boys' game will tip around 7:30 p.m.

The games, against visiting Carolina Christian Conference mate Crossroads Christian, were originally scheduled for Jan. 17.
