To enter to win the gift pack, please post a comment below just letting me know you would like to enter. There are no "hoops" to jump through to register for this one.

My mom died of ovarian cancer a few years ago and my cousin begins her first round of chemo to fight her breast cancer on February 17th so raising money for cancer research hits close to home.

I'll pick the winning name randomly on Friday, 2/10 at 11:00 AM so you have time to get the gift pack with the basketball tickets.
