January events : Human Trafficking Awareness Month
The Lincolnview Lady Lancers and the Van Wert Lady Cougars Basketball teams are once again going head to head raising funds for human trafficking victims in this 2nd annual event. Each team will have separate fund raisers during December and January and the team raising the most money will get the traveling trophy! Will the trophy stay at Lincolnview or will Van Wert swipe it from them? Last year the difference between the 2 teams was less the $5! The winner will be announced between the JV and Varsity game at Van Wert on January 11th. Join us at the game where you can make a donation to your team or purchase white bracelets.
New this year are white rubber bracelets! These thin white bracelets feature the words PEOPLE ARE NOT PROPERTY on one side and STOP HUMAN TRAFFICKING on the other side. We will also have our regular slip know bracelets available at all of our January events! All bracelets are $5 each or 3 for $5.
