Madras High School boys basketball program is making a strong push to raise funds to attend the Cactus Jam in Phoenix, Ariz., in December.
The White Buffalos have done various fundraisers this summer and have several upcoming events to help fund the five-day trip.
"This is an opportunity for our players to compete against high-level teams that they don't normally compete against," MHS head coach Allen Hair said.
The program will host a can drive Sept. 17 from 9-4 p.m. at Erickson's.
On Oct. 15, the boys program is teaming with the girls program to host a four-person golf scramble at Kah-Nee-Ta High Desert Resort & Casino.
The White Buffalos are also selling 2011-2012 calendars that include pictures, records and more from 1993 to current players. The calendar sells for $20 or three for $50.
Last week, the boys hosted a chicken dinner prior to the start of the football game and also hosted a golf tournament in August.
"We're trying to raise $15,000 so players will have no out-of-pocket expenses," Hair said.
