Monticello Boys Basketball teams participate in 6th Annual Sullivan County BCANY vs Cancer Classic

MHS JV and varsity Games on saturday, feb. 8 at suny sullivan campus

February 5, 2014

Monticello High School's Boys Basketball teams will participate in the 6th Annual Sullivan County BCANY vs Cancer Classic taking place on Feb. 7 and 8 at the Paul Gerry Fieldhouse on the campus of SUNY Sullivan. The benefit games are designed to raise awareness, support our local hospital's oncology unit and honor those who have courageously battled this devastating disease. Over the last five years, the Classic has grown from a JV/Varsity double-header between Liberty and Monticello to a weekend of basketball excitement featuring boys and girls teams from 10 schools. Admission is $2.00 for students and $3.00 for adults. Monticello plays Liberty on Saturday, Feb. 8 - JV at 3:00 p.m. and Varsity at 4:30 p.m.

Since its inception, the BCANY vs Cancer Classic has raised more than $10,000, all of which has been donated to the Oncology Unit at Catskill Regional Medical Center. All donations and proceeds from admission sales from this year's Classic will be donated to CRMC in memory of Mr. David "Wayne" DePew, the father of SUNY Sullivan's Athletic Director, Chris DePew. Mr. DePew died last summer after a long battle with cancer and it is our hope that we can honor his memory with hard fought and well-played games. Coaches and players from all teams will be sporting something pink during the games and coaches will be wearing their sneakers instead of dress shoes. We are asking all those in attendance to wear something pink as well.

If you cannot attend the games, but would like to make a donation, please see Coach Russo, Coach Matuszak, or Mrs. Ann Hazelnis. Please make checks payable to CRMC - Oncology Unit. Thank you!
