The MCC Rebel Card students will provide a “Whopper Feed” supper from 4:30 to 7:00 in the MCC Wrestling Room. Cost of the meal is $6 ($4 for a single Whopper) and all proceeds will be donated to our total collection. There will also be a limited number of fish sandwiches available for those who are observing no meat on Fridays during Lent.
Tip-off will be at 7:00 p.m. in the MCC high school gym. A free will offering will be taken at the doors. Twenty-four MCC staff members have stepped up to form a team, while thirty students who are non-basketball players will make up the student team.
Fans in the stands will be encouraged to support their favorite team not only by cheering them on, but also by adding to their score. During the game, a bucket for each team will be circulated throughout the crowd. For each dollar put in a team's bucket, one point will be added to the score! Once the final buzzer sounds, the totals will be announced to determine the winning score.
On hand for the evening will be the MCC pep band, and they will be joined members of the Slayton Community Band! There will be a "special" group of staff cheerleaders.
We will also be accepting hair donations for “Pantene Beautiful Lengths” which provides free wigs to cancer patients who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy treatments. Local cosmetologists are donating their time to cut 8-inch hair donations.
The MCC Student Council Relay for Life Team is sponsoring Coaches vs. Cancer. On Wednesday, March 8, they will have “Hats on to Cure Cancer” and students can pay $1 to wear a hat in school all day to show their support. The elementary Student Council have also been doing fundraisers for the cause.
All proceeds from the week’s events will be donated to the American Cancer Society. We hope to see a gym full of people who will support the fight against cancer! By choosing to support the Coaches vs. Cancer program, you are helping finish the fight against cancer by making the American Cancer Society’s services and programs available to those who need them the most. Thanks for your support in helping us finish the fight against cancer.
