IRVINE — Beckman High School’s girls’ basketball team held a Pink Ribbon game on Jan. 18, when the Patriots hosted the Northwood Timberwolves.

Varsity player Nina Fukuma chaired the event with Beckman Pink Ribbon Club representative Maham Usman. Baked goods and pink ribbon armbands were sold at a donation table.

More than $200 was raised for Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s breast cancer research and education.

Beckman, led by Alexis Casillas with 30 points, won the Pacific Coast League game, 50-35.
