Seniors challenge ‘seniors’ to full-court fundraiser
Tonganoxie High School basketball seniors will have one last basketball appearance as Chieftains.
A benefit basketball game pitting the THS seniors against teachers, school members and other community members will be held at 7 p.m. Friday in the THS gymnasium.
The event is being billed as the Seniors vs. "Seniors" basketball game. Admission is $2 per person and money goes to Project Grad, an event offered the night of THS graduation to provide safe celebration for graduating Tonganoxie seniors.
Dianne Gonser, one of the organizers for the event, said a concession stand would be available for the game. And longtime physical education instructor and coach Phil Jeannin would be the referee for the game.
"He takes bribes," Gonser said with a laugh. "So maybe we can make some more money if they score enough points."
This will be the second annual installment of the Project Grad game.
