Attention MABO Officials and Friends: Please join the Manitoba Association of Basketball Officials (MABO) as we look to raise funds for the fight against cancer through the 8th Annual ‘Call A Foul On Cancer’ Pink Whistle Campaign by asking you and your friends to consider a small donation to our cause. The ‘Call A Foul On Cancer’ Pink Whistle Campaign strives to raise funds for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. Participating MABO Officials will be wearing ‘Pink Whistles’ for the month of February to show their support during all levels of basketball in the province. With your help and generosity, our donations through this campaign help fund cancer research, patient care, and treatments in Manitoba. Each year, more and more Manitoba men, women, and children are winning their battles against the disease with the aid of CancerCare Manitoba oncologists, nurses, radiation therapists, and allied health care workers. Knowing that 1 in 2 Manitobans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, it’s distressing to think that the disease will most likely affect a loved one or close friend. Together we can help Manitobans living with cancer and relieve the effects on those individuals and their families! For those interested MABO officials, we are asking for a minimum donation of a full game fee ($40) which includes your very own Fox40 Pink Whistle and lanyard. Please contact your local assignor to donate and order your pink whistle/lanyard before January 27th. MABO has approved the use of the Pink Whistle during ALL games from February 1st -28th, 2018. If you’re not a MABO official, but would still like to donate… call the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation office at 204-784-2777. Canadian tax receipts will be issued in your name for all donations over $15.00. For more information, please contact MABO Pink Whistle Campaign Chair : Jamie Bernard at j_bernard84@yahoo.ca
