AMBOY — The Amboy Lady Clippers and AFC Lady Basketball squads teamed up to win the battle against cancer on Jan. 17.
The two teams came together to host a Pink Out Night during their JV and Varsity games. The girls held a quilt raffle, t-shirts sale, Chuck a Duck raffle and a silent auction. Together the teams raised $1,500 during the night and contributed the proceeds to The Charity Stripe and will be donated locally. The Charity Stripe® is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for charitable recipients who are experiencing financial and/or emotional hardship due to military service, debilitating illness, natural disaster and/or other philanthropic conditions.
