Local firefighters hit courts for cause

Written, Produced, Broadcast by KVOW/KTAK News Director Leslie Stratmoen

RIVERTON — Local firefighters hope their grudge basketball match between Riverton and Lander brings in the crowds so they’ll have a good stash of money to hand over to the local cancer fund. Riverton Assistant Fire Chief David Woolery said last year’s match-up brought in $9,600, which was given to the Tough Enough to Help Cancer Fund, to help patients and families pay for incidentals not covered by insurance.

The game is scheduled for Saturday, March 23, at the Riverton High School gym. Players from the Riverton Volunteer Fire Department will be looking for an upset over the Lander Volunteer firefighting crew that’s taken home the trophy the last couple years.

Tickets are $5 and $3 for kids or $15 for a family of four. Woolery said they’re also still looking for items to auction off during half-time and a new couch where a few lucky fans will win the chance to sit at half court to watch the game and eat complimentary pizza. Donations can be made by calling the Riverton fire station. That number is listed in the phone book.

The RVFD Assistant Chief talked about the charity basketball game on Chit Chat, with News Director Leslie Stratmoen. To hear the show, which aired on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013 – CLICK HERE
