Based on last year's performance, anyone interested in supporting a night of basketball for a good cause at MICDS ought to arrive on the Warson Road campus early.
The third annual Paint it Pink double header features the varsity basketball teams at John Burroughs and MICDS. Needless to say, this is one of the longest and most intense rivalries held anywhere today.
The girls take the court at 6:30 p.m., and the boys at 8 p.m. MICDS trainer Stacy Morgan organizes this annual drive.
There is no admission charge, but all donations tht night goes directly to the American Cancer Society cause.
Special occasion t-shirts are on sale and there will be 50/50 raffles; the sale of special awareness pink ribbons and plenty of slices of pizza to go around.
Both schools go out of their way to support charitable events, and this is just another one of those on the annual calendar.
Later this month, the boys and girls teams from MICDS will play at Scottrade Center in the annual Coaches vs Cancer basketball shootout.
