High School girls’ basketball teams hold fund-raising contest

Benefits Children’s Miracle Network, WVU Children’s Hospital

MORGANTOWN, W.VA. – The Ohio High School Athletic Association Foundation girls’ basketball games Friday (Nov. 21) between Marietta High School and Frontier High School will raise money for Children’s Miracle Network and West Virginia University Children’s Hospital. 

Junior varsity and varsity teams will play beginning at 6 p.m. in the Marietta High School gymnasium.  Admission is $5.  Prizes will be given throughout the evening, and a game ball signed by both teams will be raffled off at the end of the third quarter.  The public is encouraged to attend to cheer for their favorite teams while raising money for Children’s Miracle Network.

“When asked if we were interested in hosting a Foundation Game, I immediately thought of the Children’s Miracle Network,” Tom Wildt, Marietta’s head coach, said.  “They do incredible things for the healthcare of kids, and I am privileged to be associated with them.” 

Children’s Miracle Network is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children’s hospitals across North America.

WVU Children’s Hospital physicians provide care for children at the hospital in Morgantown and at clinics throughout the state.
