Come one, come all and watch Affton School District teachers, administrators and staff take on the Harlem Wizards basketball show team.
See how Affton school staff will stack up against the Wizards’ fancy passes, slam dunks and spontaneous gags.
The Wizards played against a school in a Patch town in New Jersey. Check out the story for a video, lots of photos and a play-by-play report.
The comedic basketball show will benefit the Affton Schools Mother’s Club, which buys school supplies that are beyond teachers’ budgets, like ABC rugs for kindergarten classes, which can cost hundreds of dollars.
The Mothers’ Club has 1,200 tickets to sell, and Laura Lanemann, the group’s secretary, says she thinks tickets will sell out quickly.
“We are really excited about it,” Lanemann said. “This is probably one of the biggest event the mothers club has ever put on.”
The Mothers’ Club posted the event to Affton-Shrewsbury Patch’s calendar.
The club will earn money from ticket sales, souvenirs and concessions.
The game will start at 7 p.m. September 21 at Affton High School.
