District 186 schools are all shooting for a “Slam Dunk for the City,” gearing up for Boys City Basketball Tournament with a fundraiser to benefit St. Martin de Porres that begins today, Thursday, Jan. 14.
This is the 9th year of the Spirit of Giving effort during City Tournament. Lanphier, Southeast and Springfield High Schools, along with Sacred Heart-Griffin, are all working together to top last year’s $13,000 total. Hy-Vee also plans to match money raised with product donations again this year. Additionally, all District 186 schools have been invited to participate in the fundraiser for the second year. Community members are encouraged to donate money and non-perishable food items and can bring their contributions to the convention center during the tournament.
