  • Carrier Mills-Stonefort school volunteers are raising money to fight cancer through a "Pink Out" basketball game 6 p.m. Jan. 29.
    Both Carrier Mills-Stonefort players and the Gallatin County rival team that night are expected to wear pink uniforms as well as the teams' cheerleaders. The crowd is invited to join in with support.
    "We'll have pink cotton candy and we'll even die the popcorn if we can," Sarah Absher said.
    "We're trying to make it the biggest, brightest basketball game we can."
    Pink T-shirts are available for the crowd to purchase for the night through calling Carrier Mills High School at 994-2392 or the Girls in the Garage T-shirt manufacturing business.
    "We have close to $300 shirts sold," Absher said.
    There will be baskets for raffling. Both Carrier Mills and Gallatin County have arranged for a basket to be raffled and there will be a 50/50 drawing. All proceeds go to the Susan B. Komen for the Cure.
    Absher said a friend's recent diagnosis with breast cancer inspired her to get involved.
