The West Hancock Community School District is holding its annual Coaches vs. Cancer Friday night at the West Hancock High School. The fundraiser is a part of the basketball games between the West Hancock Eagles and the Forest City High School Indians. The girls game will begin at 6:15pm and the boys will follow at 7:30pm. The annual event is always well attended and is designed to raise money for the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer.
Various activities will take place including a guest speaker, an honoring of the late Gary Gjerstad, former basketball color analyst on Eagles broadcasts on B-103fm who fell victim to cancer three times before succumbing to the disease, a bake sale, a silent auction, 3 point pledges, and numerous other events and activities.
