Laurens to battle cancer Saturday
A full day of basketball will coincide with Laurens’ Coaches vs. Cancer day Saturday, beginning with fifth- and sixth-grade games at 9 a.m. and ending with Laurens’ boys varsity team hosting Franklin at 7 p.m.
Between, there will be a boys modified game at 1 p.m., a girls modified game at 2:30 p.m., a boys junior varsity game at 4 p.m. and a girls varsity game at 5:30 p.m.
Admission is free, but donations would be appreciated. Proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society.
The event also will feature a bake sale, concessions and raffles throughout the day. Among the items to be raffled are signed basketballs by North Carolina head coach Roy Williams and former New York Knicks guard John Starks.
