Police, housing authority square off on basketball court

Aug. 01, 2013 @ 05:27 PM

The High Point Housing Authority and High Point police will take their game to the basketball court to see if a little healthy competition can raise some big bucks.
The game, a fundraiser for the High Point Housing Authority Scholarship Fund, will be held Saturday in the gym of Andrews High School 6-8 p.m.
“We are looking forward to a friendly competition on the court while at the same time raising much-needed funds for the High Point Housing Authority Scholarship Fund. This fundraiser is for a great cause, so please consider supporting this effort,” said Anglea McGill, chief executive officer. “The scholarship fund means a lot to families who depend on the HPHA for housing assistance.”
There will be a 50/50 raffle give-away, a free-throw contest, a three-point shooting contest, halftime entertainment provided by Macedonia Elite dance team and a step show by Parade and Drill Steppers out of Greensboro.
Prizes to be given out throughout the evening include gift cards and certificates from local restaurants and merchandise from High Point University.
Concessions will be available through the evening, with proceeds going to the scholarship fund.
“We are very excited each time we as a community come together for a great cause such as this,” McGill said. “You get to have fun and change the lives of students at the same time. We hope that we will be standing room only because of the generosity that is always shown in our community at large.”
Tickets are $3 for children 15 and under and $5 for adults. They can be bought in advance or at the door.
