Romeo and Sterling Heights Stevenson High School Boys’ Basketball Teams
Playing a “Coaches vs. Cancer” Fundraising Game.
ROMEO, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, JANUARY 26, 2023 ... On Monday, February 13, 2023, starting at 5:30 p.m., at Romeo High School, 62300 Jewell Road, Washington, MI 48094, the Romeo Bulldogs JV and Varsity boys’ basketball teams will take on the Stevenson Titans for the benefit of the American Cancer Society and in honor of each boy’s chosen cancer warrior.
This first-ever Coaches vs. Cancer basketball game at Romeo is sponsored by Trinitas Planning Group and Rancilio & Associates. All players and attendees are encouraged to wear white to “white out” cancer.
“We want these boys and our community to know, everyone can do something to help,” says Romeo coach Randy Frantz. “Like all of us, they know someone who has experienced a cancer battle. They also know it’s hard to know how to help. Coming together in a Coaches vs. Cancer game gives us all a chance to contribute.”
Beyond a financial donation, each JV and Varsity team member from both schools will dedicate their game to someone they know who has battled cancer.
Romeo player Giorgio Ruffino says, “I’m honored to play for my Godfather Vinnie (Moe) Ruffino. Vinnie currently lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He is recovering from prostate cancer and doing very well. His resiliency and great personality inspire me to this day!”
Says Coach Frantz, “The value of this game goes way beyond sports and financial donations, it’s a celebration of family and community we’re proud to be a part of.”
Tickets to the game will be sold at the Romeo High School gym starting at 3:30 p.m. game day. JV tip off time is 5:30 p.m. and Varsity is 7:00 p.m. For more information, contact Coach Frantz at 586.524.2292.
