The West Plains High School Lady Zizzer Basketball Team will host their Tenth Annual Zizzer Pink Out night on Monday, Feb. 6, at West Plains High School. Games will begin at 4:30 p.m., with the Freshmen, Junior Varsity and Varsity teams in action against Waynesville. West Plains Bank and Trust Company is the sponsor for the event and all proceeds raised will benefit Ozarks Healthcare (OHC) Cancer Treatment Center.
The amount raised from the 2022 Lady Zizzer Pink Out game totaled $22,250, a record-breaking fundraising year in the event’s history. Since West Plains Bank and Trust Company began sponsoring this event in 2019, approximately $65,400 has been raised with all proceeds benefitting Ozarks Healthcare Cancer Treatment Center and respective campaigns. “Our health system is incredibly appreciative of the generosity shown by the West Plains Lady Zizzers, along with community partners such as West Plains Bank and Trust Company, through the annual Pink-Out tradition,” Josh Reeves, Vice President of Development at Ozarks Healthcare, said. “The funds raised through last years’ event aided in the purchase of the mobile mammography unit for Ozarks Healthcare, which we hope will hit the pavement very soon. We are fortunate to live and serve in a wonderful community that is supportive of our mission to provide compassionate and quality healthcare close to home.”
