“Coaches Versus Cancer” Event Planned For Tuesday In Sibley

Date posted - February 24, 2012

A little fun and a fundraiser to help defeat cancer are planned on Tuesday in Sibley.

Jackie Kannegieter tells us a little about the event, which starts at 7 PM.

She says that for the past several years, the Bumblebees, a team spearheaded by Survivior Eli Jansma of Sibley, his mom Connie, and his family have participated in the American Cancer Societys Relay For Life of Osceola County. This year, Kannegieter says Connie Jansma and the family have taken their team activities to a new level.

Coach Daryl Tutje will be the MC for the event. Kannegieter says it’s unique that they’re doing a whole game. She says normally fundraisers of this type take the form of a short game during halftime of a high school game.

She says there will be a free will offering and lots of other fun fund raisers throughout the evening — which is being dubbed “Shooting for Hope”.

This fun family event will include games and contests at each quarter break, music by the pep band, and dance team participation with a special survivor performance. There will also be a pass the bucket event. Concessions will be served by the team from U S Bank.

Again, that’s Tuesday night at 7:00 at the Sibley/Ocheyedan High School Gym.
