Cody Basketball Team Hosting Fundraiser for Conor Webster
Written by Cole Havens on January 16, 2023
The Cody High School Bronc basketball team is hosting a fundraiser for one of their own. Former Bronc player, Conor Webster, was severely injured in a work accident on December 7th. He was flown to Billings, where he remains in ICU and continues to be cared for by a dedicated medical team. The Broncs and Fillies invite the Cody community to come out to the “Post-Up 4 C-Web” benefit games on Friday, January 20th at Sweitzer gymnasium.
Webster, a 2011 CHS graduate who was often known by his nickname, ‘C-Web,’ wore #4 and played the post position for the Broncs and Coach McCarten. McCarten believes in a ‘team first’ mentality, knowing it also means every member – past and present – will forever have a team around to help and support him/her in times of trial. McCarten, along with his players and their parents, organized the fundraiser to help Webster and his wife, Tessa, with the unexpected medical expenses.
Some highlights of the “Post-Up 4 C-Web” benefit fundraiser include:
- Raffle baskets, featuring University of Wyoming gear, car care and detailing, a ski theme, and blue and gold gear.
- “Vote” for the MVP – donate to cast your vote for who you believe will be the Filly and Bronc MVP of the varsity games.
- Future Broncs and Fillies can get in on the action, with raffles for autographed basketballs and to be “Honorary Bronc,” where they will lead the team out, sit with and experience an entire home game with the Broncs.
- Free-throw shoot – during halftime of the girls’ varsity game, fans can pay $1 to shoot a free-throw to win a one-liter bottle of soda. The soda was graciously donated by Pepsi.
Come out to cheer on your Fillies and Broncs and support ‘C-Web.’ All money raised during the event will go directly to Conor Webster.
