Hoops ’n Hope fundraiser to benefit Bonnie’s Bus

A service of WVU Healthcare and the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, Bonnie’s Bus is the only mobile mammography unit in West Virginia and travels to all parts of the state. Hoops ’n Heels was created as an avenue to not only help increase attendance at women’s basketball games but to also provide both a networking and mentoring opportunity for members and the team.

“We are very excited that the WVU Women’s Basketball Team and Hoops ’n Heels are willing to partner with us to raise funds to support Bonnie’s Bus,” Sara Jane Gainor, Bonnie’s Bus director, said. “We are also very grateful to all the local merchants that have donated items for our basket raffle. The money raised will be used to pay for gas and travel for the staff and for mammograms for women who are uninsured.”

The cost of participation in Hoops ’n Hope is $5 and includes a reserved-seating ticket for the WVU women’s basketball game against Virginia that day at 4 p.m., entry into a raffle for a WVU women’s basketball souvenir, an opportunity to purchase tickets for several other raffle items, and a tour of the WVU Basketball Practice Facility. Children under 10 years of age will be admitted free. Cash or check only will be accepted.
