For the tenth year in a row teachers, administrators, and staff from Webster Thomas High School and West Irondequoit High School will compete in a basketball game remembering Adam Milne to raise money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. The game is scheduled for Friday, March 4, at 7 p.m. at Irondequoit High School.
Adam was a social studies teacher at Irondequoit High School who was married to a teacher from Webster for three months, until he passed away of leukemia. Adam made a profound impact on his students and colleagues, living his motto, “Go Forth and Spread Joy.”
Like most charity basketball games, you’ll find quite a mix of talented, experienced, athletic players, along with plenty of us uncoordinated rookies who run around in circles, have fun, and are just proud if the ball hits the backboard!
You can help by coming to the game, sponsoring a player, or making a donation to this worthy cause in a fun and exciting event. Tickets will be sold only at the door on a first come, first served basis. There will be 600 gym tickets sold, $5 for students and $7 for adults. For any more than 600 people arrangements are being looked into sell additional seats in the auditorium to view a live feed. If feasible, those tickets would be $2.
Personal and/or corporate donations may be made by contacting Lou DiCesare at Louis_DiCesare@westiron.monroe.edu.)
