Thursday’s basketball doubleheader between Butte Central and Anaconda at Memorial Gym will be dedicated to Gabbie Stetzner’s fight with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma
Stetzner is a 15-year-old sophomore at Anaconda High School. She is currently undergoing treatment at Children’s Cancer Center in Portland, Maine. She is the daughter of Chris and Miranda Stetzner.
Butte Broadcasting owners Ron and Shelly Davis and Blake and Melissa Hempstead of Copperhead Country have stepped in to help with their broadcasts of the games. Ron Davis will dedicate his broadcast on KOPR 94 to the #GabbieStrong cause. Hempstead will do the same with his coverage at copperheadcountry.com.
Not only will both businesses donate Stetzner’s cause, we are also providing drop off boxes at local businesses so you can donate to the family in order to offset some of the costs associated with treating the illness.
A donation box will be available at Dee Motor in Anaconda, at South West Montana Community Federal Credit Union in Anaconda and Butte and at the studios of Butte Broadcasting, 660 Dewey Blvd. in Butte. You can also stop by any First Montana Bank and donate in Gabbie’s honor. To mail a donation, you can send it to #GabbieStrong, 803 W. Park in Anaconda.
Butte Central is also raising money for Stetzner at its pancake breakfast on Thursday. Every student who brings $5 to the breakfast will receive a pass for free dress on Friday. All the money will be donated to the Stetzner family.
The girls’ game is scheduled to tip off at 6 p.m. The boys will play at about 7:30.
