Three main fundraising events take place in March in Bird Island, Wabasso and Glencoe called “Jam the Gym”. The main focus of the events are two basketball games played by male and female high school seniors along with Slam Dunk and Three-Point Shootout contests for one of the most entertaining evenings in the state of Minnesota.
Special entertainment will vary from event-to-event. Throughout the years the Fargo-Moorhead Acro Team and Alexandria Aces have entertained large crowds. Playful antics from Minnesota mascots including Timberwolves “Crunch” and Gophers “Goldy” along with other NBA mascots such as the Utah Jazz “Bear” and Dunk Teams always add to the excitement.
Throughout the evening, those in attendance can also participate in other activities taking places such as Raffle Ticket Sales for a chance to win gift cards, cash or items donated by local businesses and community members. Silent auctions are also held for a chance to bid and purchase sports memorabilia, gift baskets and quilts along with numerous other items.
We hope to see you at one of our upcoming “Jam the Gym” Events in the Spring of 2017!
