Full House for Students vs. Faculty Game

Basketball contest raised funds for juniors’ trip to New Orleans

In an action-packed, fun-filled Haldane Fundraising event made possible by Haldane Junior Class President Alex Gariepy and her fellow classmates, the Haldane community came out en masse on Friday, May 1, to lend their support and cheer on both the students and teachers.

The student players, representing high school freshmen through seniors, made it a tough night for the 17 teachers who came ready to play. In a game where everyone came away a winner, the students defeated the faculty 59-52.

The fundraiser will help Alex and her classmates raise funds for their 2016 senior trip to New Orleans to help others in need. Way to go, Alex and all who participated in making this event a huge success. Can’t wait for the rematch in 2016.
