The Wildcats will take on West Virginia the following day at the Coliseum.

“This is a great opportunity to come out and enjoy a casual evening with friends, while supporting two great causes,” said WVU Head Men’s Basketball Coach Bob Huggins. “We’ve got a big game the next day, so we invite you to join us at the fish fry then come to the Coliseum Saturday for some great basketball.”

The Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment Fund at the WVU Cancer Institute was created by Coach Huggins in honor of his late mother, who lost her battle with colon cancer in 2003.  The endowment supports cancer research. Since its inception, more than $1.35 million has been raised to fund cancer research at the WVU Cancer Institute. For more information, visit wvucancer.org.

Remember the Miners raises public awareness to support and honor the legacy of all miners and the mining industry, while remembering those miners who have fallen. Since the organization was founded six years ago, Remember the Miners has given more than $250,000 to miners and their families since its inception.

    Barrackville Middle School athletes make donation to breast cancer research

    The boy’s and girl’s basketball teams at Barrackville Middle School are raising breast cancer awareness and supporting the WVU Cancer Institute in the fight against the disease. The players recently hosted their second annual pink out game against St. Francis at North Marion High School where they presented a check for $850 to the WVU Cancer Institute for breast cancer research. They, along with the St. Francis players, raised the money by selling pink t-shirts to their friends, families and others in their community. “Our athletes and coaches feel strongly about supporting this cause and want to help find a cure for breast cancer,” Russell Hixenbaugh, teacher and girl’s basketball coach at Barrackville Middle, said.
