Congratulations to this week’s Showcase Cinemas High School Team of the Week: Johnston High School Girls Basketball!
This week’s spotlight was sent in by Meghan Reall:
In support of the Suits and Sneakers Week to help fight cancer, the Johnston high school girls Basketball team organized and ran a two-night Coaches vs. Cancer Pink Out basketball game. Sophomore Emily Iannuccilli lead the event, along with the rest of the girls team. The team collected donations at the door of the boys JV and Varsity basketball games on Monday 1/20, while the boys did the same for the girls game on Tuesday 1/21. Anyone who donated was asked to complete a “Today I Honor” sign to honor an individual they know who was affected by cancer. The girls and boys teams hung the signs in the gym for both nights. In total, the two teams collected $2,737, which will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Donations at the door, a 50/50 raffle, and generous donations from several members of the Johnston community made this event such a success!
Cumulus Media Radio Stations, Showcase Cinemas, & the Rhode Island Interscholastic League congratulate this week’s stand-out team of the week.
