Liberty Charter Students Rally For Friend’s Mom Fighting Breast Cancer
The Treasure Valley is over flowing with some of the most kindhearted people I've ever met. That includes the students at Liberty Charter in Nampa who are coming together to help a friend's mother who's currently in the fight of her life with Breast Cancer. They're asking you to help join the fight tonight during the "Patriot Pink Out!"
Here's some details from Sarah, Gayle and Tina who helped put the event together:
When high school students at Liberty Charter School, a k-12 public school in Nampa, learned that the mom of one of their youngest students was fighting cancer for the second time, and the expenses for care were mounting, they knew they had to do something to help. Since it's such a small school this type of crisis pulls at the heart strings of the school students hard.
To help, the high schoolers have planned several activities and displays of support to hopefully encourage and financially assist this family, with the most important happening Friday Feb. 6.
Part of those plans is the “Patriot Pink Out,” during the boys’ basketball game. Varsity plays at 7:30 p.m.; JV at 6 p.m. Students are asking that fans come decked out in pink, and they’re inviting everyone from Nampa and the surrounding communities so the gym is packed to overflowing.
The Patriot Pink Out will include several ways to help the family, including a baked potato feed, silent auction, and raffles throughout the evening. All the proceeds will go to the family. Even a portion of the night’s gate fees will be donated. “Everyone will contribute to helping this family this night -- from their ticket, to making the baked potato feed their dinner option, to participating in the silent auction and raffles – all while watching a great night of basketball.
Liberty Charter School is located at 9955 Kris Jensen Lane. Friday’s Patriot Pink Out will be held in the McKnight Bryant Center, the second building just beyond the main school building. Tickets to the game are $5 for adults/senior citizens, $3 for students, free for Liberty students with activity card. The potato feed will run $4-6 per meal.
If you can't make it to the game an account for the family has been set up through Idaho Central Credit Union. Donations can be made at any ICCU location to the Shannon Brown Charitable Account.
