Hoops for a Cure details

The 18th Annual Hoops for a Cure basketball tripleheader will be Saturday at Chartiers Valley High School. And although the event features plenty of Upper St. Clair, Bethel Park and Chartiers Valley, there will be some Washington County representatives, too.

In the girls game, which starts at 4:30 p.m., Caitlin McLuckie of South Fayette and California's Courtnee McMasters will play for the WPIAL Class A-AA team.

Then in the boys game -- WPIAL all-stars vs. Class AAAA all-stars, starting at approximately 6 p.m. -- Evan Bonnaure of South Fayette will join Washington's Josh Wise on the WPIAL team. Trinity's Christian Koroly will play for the Class AAAA team.

The final game of the evening pits the Chartiers Valley and South Fayette faculty teams against each other. Tipoff for that game is at 7:30 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Nathan S. Arenson Fund for Pancreatic Cancer Research established at the University of Pittsburgh. The first 17 events have accounted for a large portion of the $1.2 million raised for the Foundation.

Tickets are on sale for $5 adults, $3 for kids over age 3. Kids under 3 are admitted free. A raffle will be held as part of the evening, with the grand prize being two tickets for the quarterfinals of this year's U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York City.

There will also be numerous autographed jerseys, as well as a one-of-a-kind football helmet, featuring the logos of Chartiers Valley and South Fayette and a Pancreatic Cancer Awareness ribbon.
