The Faculty vs. Student Basketball game, held Thursday night at 7:00 PM in the East Campus Competition Gym was an overall success for all involved. Orchestrated by Mr. LaScala, who had his head shaved at half time, and his Marketing class, the school raised over $1,000 for Net Gain, a charity benefitting an inner-city high school, Orr Academy, with an under-financed athletic program.
Multiple prizes were awarded, including Cubs tickets, White Sox tickets, a wide selection of Scouts apparel, and even an iHome. In the game, despite a great effort from the Intramural Championship teams, the faculty presented too much size and skill. Led by an MVP performance from Math teacher Ms. Tia Rupnik and great post play from Special Ed. teacher Mr. Harmsen, the faculty were able to pull away in the fourth quarter and eventually earn a victory.
Thank you to all who attended Thursday night’s event and who partook in the raffle event. If you won a prize and were not in attendance to claim it, please contact Mr. LaScala in the Business Ed. office.
