GIRLS Got Game round celebrated the best of our up-and-coming female players, coaches, referees and administrators.
It’s amazing to see what a big deal the girls and associations made of dressing up, wearing purple, getting into the face painting and draping the venues with balloons and streamers.
Getting into the spirit of the round – donning as much purple as possible and getting the team together for a celebratory photo – 24 associations entered our Girls Got Game Photo Competition from the round on 19 May.
The MUVJBL Girls Got Game voting team decided on a winner in a very close contest. With the Chelsea Gulls 14/1 girls named the winners with their massive banner a real highlight of the event.
Each player on the team will receive a Medibank National Junior Classic basketball, but the greatest winner of them all was Camp Quality.
On behalf of the fundraising efforts of everyone throughout the MUVJBL community, we raised $1700 for the charity, after donating $2 for every three-pointer made across the evening.
Girls Got Game Coordinator Kim Round and MUVJBL Association Support Officer Lyn Payet presented the cheque to Camp Quality. That fundraised amount will be used to fund a one-day camp that costs about $100 per child, with between 15-20 kids having fun and celebrating life while also getting a day off from the tough challenges they face coping with childhood cancer.
It’s amazing to see the community embrace these celebratory rounds and here’s hoping
