McCOOK, Nebraska -- During the half-times of the McCook Community College Men's and Women's basketball games on Saturday, Jan. 19, the crowd will be invited to make their way down to the court to attempt a shot to benefit the Mid-Plains United Way of McCook.
The cost for three shots is $1, and if you are able to make one of the three, you will win a free two-liter bottle of pop compliments of McCook National Bank. If you can make two out of three shots, your name will be put into a drawing for a $50 gift card that will be drawn at the end of the third quarter, also compliments of MNB.
Those in sixth grade or under will shoot from the north basket and everyone else will shoot at the south basket. United Way board members will be stationed under each basket to keep track of the shooters.
"We are so thankful to the MCC Basketball teams, PTK Students, and McCook National Bank for helping us with this fundraiser," said Linda Schifflebein, United Way Coordinator. "Mid-Plains United Way of McCook plays a critical role in the community each and every day as people of all ages and walks of life throughout McCook and the surrounding counties are helped by 14 different agencies through services that they provide."
The fun will be repeated at the Friday, Feb. 15 games. For more information, call Linda at (308)340-8398.
