Lakeside High School has come up with an interesting way to raise funds for its track and field teams – students versus teachers in a game of donkey basketball.
The unique fundraiser will be at 1 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 30 in the Lakeside High School gym. Students from both Central Elementary and Lakeside will be in attendance to cheer on the competitors. Teachers and students will be riding donkeys and attempting to sink buckets in an all-out basketball battle.
Lakeside teachers who have signed up to play include: Coach J.T. Austin, Coach Scott Johnston, Coach Denny Finley, math teacher Nathan Richardson, business teacher Libby Watkins, science teacher Jenny Clarke and English teacher Lee Ann Winkle. Central staff signed up include Principal Guy Sanders as well as teachers Lacie Daniels, Stephanie Pittman, Garth Owens, and Cathy Dick.
Student spots are filling up fast as well.
The public is encouraged to turn out and show support. Advance tickets can be purchased at the Lakeside High School office for $10. Tickets at the gate will be $12. All proceeds go to the track and field teams.
