DANVILLE, Va. - The Danville Braves presented a donation of nearly $1,300 to the Danville Cancer Association Thursday morning. The D-Braves raised $1,271.70 through the auction of game-used jerseys worn on the team's Colon Cancer Awareness Night during the 2016 season.
"We're proud to continue to support the Danville Cancer Association," said Danville Braves General Manager David Cross. "The work that the Danville Cancer Association does to help support cancer patients in the area has a big impact on local families."
2016 marked the sixth year in which the D-Braves wore and auctioned cancer awareness jerseys.
