Hampton Middle School will host a staff-versus-students charity basketball game to benefit Will Pilarski, a Central Elementary School third grade student who has been battling medullobalstoma, a form a brain cancer.
The big game kicks off at 3:15 p.m. on Friday, March 31 in the Hampton Middle School gymnasium. Prior to the start of the game, attendees will have the opportunity to stop by the concession stand to purchase a variety of snacks and beverages.
A variety of themed baskets will be raffled off as part of the event. Tickets for the baskets can be purchased at three for $1, five for $3 and 10 for $5 until halftime, when the winners will be drawn. The baskets include items such as gift cards, games, movie night items and sports items. The baskets are being donated by the Middle School and Central Elementary School staff and PTOs, and a few local businesses.
All proceeds from the concessions, raffle and ticket sales will benefit the Pilarski family.
During the halftime break, Mrs. Marlynn Lux, HMS Acting Principal, will recognize the Pilarski family and announce the winner of the 50-50 raffle.
“We are honored to hold this event for the Pilarski family,” said Mrs. Lux. “Please join us as we support the Pilarski family during this difficult time.”
Tickets for the game are $2 in advance and $3 at the door.
