The coaches then entertained questions from the audience over the final 30 minutes of the event. Proceeds from the event went to the American Cancer Society.
This is the third straight year for the event. The initial year was a breakfast before it was moved to a luncheon. This year’s event was nearly packed with nearly 500 people in attendance.
The American Cancer Society’s Coaches vs. Cancer program is a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). The program empowers athletic coaches, their teams, and communities to join in the fight against cancer and help raise awareness and funds through year-round educational efforts and fundraising activities.
