South Kamloops secondary is getting ready to play host to Kelly Olynyk night, which is set to honour its distinguished alumnus and raise money and awareness for prostate cancer charities.
The night will coincide with Olynyk’s NBA regular-season debut. Olynyk, a first-round pick of the Celtics, will lead Boston into the regular season against the Milwaukee Bucks on Nov. 1.
The Kelly Olynyk Night is set to begin at 3:45, with the game to be shown on a big screen starting at 4:30. There will be videos, games, prizes and food.
All money raised will be donated to the Movember cause, in which men grow moustaches for prostate cancer awareness and charities.
Olynyk, a 7-foot-0 centre, graduated from South Kam in 2009, and played three seasons at Gonzaga University in Spokane.
