Loch Sheldrake, NY (February 1, 2012) – The SUNY Sullivan Athletics Department and Basketball Program will be hosting a day of basketball games on February 11, 2012 to raise money for the cancer care program at Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC). This fourth annual event to benefit CRMC’s Oncology Program will feature a slate of games including local Varsity and Junior Varsity match-ups and, for the first time this year, two college games featuring the SUNY Sullivan men’s and women’s teams.

Her cousin, Dante Agnew, is a current student athlete at SUNY Sullivan, and a top scorer on this year’s #1 nationally ranked Generals team.
Proceeds from admission to the event will be donated, as will money raised via voluntary drop-boxes in the Paul Gerry Field House on the day of the event, event tee shirt sales, and 50/50 Raffles offered during the games.
