The event is part of the 9th annual Officials vs Cancer fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society, with $1 from every $6 ticket sold donated to the cause. Fairfield County Board No. 9 of Approved Basketball Officials have raised more than $120,000 the past eight years. ACS fund-raising events will be taking place during the game.
The varsity girls’ game tipped off at 6 p.m. St. Joseph is 4-2 (2-1), Trumbull is 5-1 (3-0). The boys’ game followed. That game will be posted at its completion. (If you’re watching this before 9:30 p.m., you can catch the boys at HAN.Network. Or later, visit our basketball page.)
