PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” It was a full house Thursday evening, as the Lady Chucks held their second annual Defend Against Cancer basketball fundraiser.
The girls and those in the stands donned purple shirts, a color the Lady Chucks chose because it represents all forms of cancer.
"I'm very proud of all the girls. They all contributed in some way or another," said Jeanine DiPietro, mother of PAHS senior Lady Chucks player Nicole DiPietro.
