Greensboro, NC – “The 2014 Coaches vs. Cancer® Tourney Town Classic” will be held on Saturday November 29, 2014 in Fleming Gymnasium at UNCG in Greensboro, to benefit the American Cancer Society®, the official sponsor of more birthdays. The activities surrounding these games will raise funds to help support the Society’s efforts to help people in the Triad get well, stay well, find cures and fight back.
This year’s event will have six games from 11:30 to 8pm: 11:30am Piedmont vs. Carmel Christian; 1:00pm Cardinal Gibbons vs. York Prep; 2:30pm Webb vs. Dudley; 4:00pm Olympic vs. Page; 6:00pm Pinecrest vs. Smith; 8:00pm Virginia Episcopal School vs. Voyager Academy.
