Knoxville students will be dropping off their loose change in their school offices this week as just one of the fundraisers for this year’s annual Coaches vs. Cancer. High school basketball players will also be in the schools selling pink ribbon tattoos Friday morning so that students can wear them to Saturday night’s big game. In addition, there will also be pink hair extensions, ice cream and cookies for sale Saturday night, along with a silent auction with more than 170 different items, a 50/50 airplane toss, quilt raffle and alumni basketball games.

Panther fans are encouraged to wear pink and help Knoxville High School once again have the most successful Coaches vs. Cancer in the state.
