The Boise High girls basketball team has raised more than $17,000 the past 10 years for breast cancer. But it’s not done yet.

The Braves (11-4, 10-3 5A SIC) aim to top $20,000 when they host their 11th annual Pink Zone game at 6 p.m. Saturday against Skyview (2-15, 0-13).

Boise raised a record $3,492.35 last year season, donating all the money to the local chapter of the Susan G. Komen foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps provide resources for screening and diagnostic services.

Boise will raffle off prizes from local business during the game. The top prizes include two round-trip tickets anywhere Southwest Airlines flies and a stay-and-play package at the Shore Lodge in McCall.

Raffle tickets are $1, and winners do not need to be present to win.

The Braves filmed a commercial for this year’s game starring the team, detailing that one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in her life.

The event raised $600 its first year but has grown into a fundraiser that has topped $3,000 each of the past two seasons.

The Boise High girls basketball team raised a record $3,196 for the local chapter of Susan G. Komen at its ninth annual Pink Zone on Friday, Jan. 13.
