The Washoe County District Attorney’s Office would like to thank the community for supporting the 2nd Annual Children’s Cancer Classic Basketball Game benefiting the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation (NNCCF). Last Saturday’s matchup between the District Attorney’s Office and the Washoe County Public Defenders raise over $7,000 in support of local families with children undergoing cancer treatment, increased awareness, and promotion of further research for a cure.
This year’s event once again featured a competitive game, where prosecutors and defense attorneys met each other on a different court, exchanging legal arguments and objections for lay-ups and three-pointers. DA Hicks said, “for the second year in a row, the real winner of the day was the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation. I think I can speak for everybody when I say, it is an honor to help fundraise for such an important organization.”
NNCCF is a local non-profit, providing assistance to local families who have children receiving treatment for cancer through financial and emotional assistance, increased awareness, and promoting research to find a cure. For more information please visit: https://nvchildrenscancer.org/
