This event was hosted in the Ben Avery Gymnasium  by both the CIS and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF). This event was hosted in order to raise awareness and money for the foundation through he game with t-shirt sales and raffle prizes.

The games taking were place were extremely exciting, keeping all fans engaged and on the edge of their seats!

The Women’s game started at 6pm and ended in an unfortunate loss to the York Lions Varsity Women’s team. The Men’s game tipped off at 8pm, with the Men’s team pulling off the thrilling 1 point victory over the York Lions, 86-85. The Women’s team joined in the festivities and awareness building of the event by wearing pink jerseys in support of the foundation.

During the game, many activities were taking place around the event. Raffle tickets were being sold all night with various prizes to be won. T-Shirts were being sold and a great half-time show was being run during both games. By hitting various shots from different spots on the court, different prizes could be won. During the game, 3rd year SPAD Student Mike Mione knocked down a half court shot to win a tablet!

One of the event organizers, Jon McQueen, had this to say about the event.

“It was a great event, we had a really good turnout tonight. The SGA and Skaters edge were very supportive of this event, and T-shirt and raffle sales went extremely well. The half-time contest went very smoothly, we had a large participation rate from the fans. The event has done everything we had hoped for, by raising both awareness and money for the CBCF.
