Alumni game at Meyer Gym approaching

Written by: Ally Justice

Three years ago, the Youth Grantmaking council came up with an idea to bring Scottsburg and Austin basketball players and cheerleaders of all ages back on the court for a fundraiser game. Ever since then, it has been successful in profit and fun. The alumni game this year will be held Nov. 19, at our home court, Meyer Gym. The girls game starts at 5 p.m. and the doors will open at 4 p.m.

When asked what the goal for the alumni game was, Youth Grantmaking council leader Jaime Toppe said, “Because of the success of the last two Alumni games, we were able to fully fund all grant requests this year.”

All of the profits made at the game goes to fund all the grant requests that YGC has this year.

YGC’s Vice President Eliza Mount said, “We hope to see a good turn out like the previous two years. It is super beneficial to our YGC and it’s also a lot of fun.”
