On Saturday, Jan. 21, John F. Kennedy High School hosted Newton Falls at their home pink-out basketball game. Members of the JFK Relay for life team sold tee-shirts and bracelets as well as raffle tickets for "lottery trees" to raise money for cancer research. Some team members were also positioned at the doors with donation buckets.
Two lottery trees were raffled off at halftime of the Varsity game. The team made a total of $135.50 off the raffle.
The student sections for both teams showed their support by wearing pink to the game. JFK cheerleaders wore pink bows in their hair and some members of the basketball team played with pink socks or pink shoelaces.
