The St. John Vianney girls basketball team signaled their support of “Breast Intentions,” a Middletown foundation that provides financial and emotional support to families dealing with breast cancer, by wearing pink uniforms in play against Holmdel High School, Feb. 7.

The team also sold candy, bracelets, 50/50 raffle tickets and shirts during the game to help raise money for the cancer foundation which relies solely on donations to help fund their cause.

 The charity has raised thousands of dollars for families in need, paying anything from mortage payments to sewer bills for families that are struggling during their cancer treatments.

Also, that night, before the game, the senior players – Angelica Esposito, Kaleigh Ganter, Zoe Otterman and Paxton Reddington – participated in the annual Senior Parent Night tradition, calling their parents on to the court to thank them for all of their support, giving the parents a rose and a framed basketball jersey.

After the game, the team and parents celebrated a 61-45 win over Holmdel with a dinner in the cafeteria.
