Annual Senior/Faculty Basketball Game Proceeds to Aid Puerto Rico

Annual Senior/Faculty Basketball Game Proceeds to Aid Puerto Rico

It was another fun-filled evening at Saint Mary’s High School’s annual Senior/Faculty Basketball Game Tuesday, Nov. 21 in Marist Hall gymnasium. In addition to being a school-spirit building activity and a St. Mary’s tradition for more than 30 years, the annual friendly athletic competition between faculty and members of the senior class is also a charity fundraising event. This year, all the proceeds from the cost of admission and the sale of game shirts will go to support the people of Puerto Rico, where many people are still without power and clean water following the devastating hits from Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria in September. Faculty, parents, students, and alumni filled the stands to cheer on both teams; New York Knick Kyle O’Quinn was also in attendance, rooting from the sidelines. Despite a terrific effort on the part of the Class of 2018, who led at halftime, the faculty team once again came out on top, with a score of 55-45, extending their undefeated record. In total, the St. Mary’s community raised $2,205.75 with the basketball game fundraiser, which will go to the Puerto Rican Family Institute to help them provide hurricane relief. Congratulations to the St. Mary’s faculty on their continued winning streak and to our seniors for their teamwork, sportsmanship and hard work. Thank you to everyone who played, came to the game or donated money, for their generosity toward our fundraiser to help the people of Puerto Rico in their time of need!
