'Pretty in Pink' Girls Basketball Game Raises Funds, Awareness of Breast Cancer

This is especially emotional for Geneva, because of the history of former head basketball coach Gina Nolan.

Want to see a great basketball game and help a great cause?

The Geneva girls basketball team invites you to "Pretty in Pink," the annual event that raises funds and awareness in the fight against breast cancer.

The Vikings host Upstate Eight rival St. Charles East. Team members also actively promote the event, which is made possible with special help from Cadence Breast Health Center at Delnor and Mobbela Salon Suites.

Doors at Geneva High School open at 5:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18. The sophomore game tips off at 5:45 p.m., and the varsity follows at 7:15 p.m.

Breast cancer awareness is especially important to Geneva girls basketball players because the team's former head coach, Gina Nolan, had to step down after the 2010-11 season to spend more time and energy in treatment of the disease.
