To the Editors:
On behalf of the Wilton High School Girls Varsity Basketball team and the American Cancer Society, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for attending our first ever Coaches vs. Cancer basketball game on Friday, Feb. 3, against Bridgeport Central. Coaches vs. Cancer, an event created by the American Cancer Society, was formed by coaches and teams that wanted to take a stand in the fight against cancer and has expanded within recent decades to hundreds of teams across the country. The money raised at these events benefits the American Cancer Society in its goals to fund cancer research and to support cancer patients. I am beyond pleased to inform our town and all contributing individuals that this was Wilton's first ever Coaches vs. Cancer event and proved successful in raising over $600.
