The 9th Annual Haldane Alumni Basketball Game tips off the Haldane basketball season at 5 p.m. on Nov. 29, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, in the Haldane Gym. At half time, the 2014–15 basketball teams show their skills in a 3-point competition before the alumni basketball players take to the court again.

Co-ed teams of recent and vintage alums will relive the memories of their glory days. The first 25 alumni who contact Coach Joe Virgadamo will be allowed to participate (must have played basketball for Haldane their senior year). Name and contact info can be left at 845-265–9254, ext. 129, or sent to [email protected].

Last year’s game featured legendary Blue Devil basketball alumni Jiggum Merante, Phil D’Amato, Greg Anderson, Tommy Wills, Kristen DeMarco, Jen Moran, Jed Varrichio, Tom Virgadamo, Wil Hoffmann and the McConville Quartet.

Contests for kids and fans, a concession stand, DJ and a raffle will add to the fun.

This is the major fundraiser for Haldane’s basketball program. Fundraising supports the summer team camp, off-season leagues and opportunities for team bonding. Admission is $2 for students and $5 for adults, or at a family discount price of $15. The cost for alumni players is $10.
