Lakeside Congregation free throw shootout!
Submitted by Lola Ajayi on February 16, 2009
The Social Action Committee at Lakeside Congregation for Reform Judaism recently hosted a free throw shootout at a local gym in Highland Park, Ill., to raise money for Nothing But Nets. Participants ranged in ages from 7 to 67 with a strong showing by the town's high school varsity basketball team and their coach.
The turnout was terrific and the fundraising effort resulted in nearly $1,700 in donations taken at the door. The event was a fun and great experience for all involved especially the winner of the day – Ben Levine, who shot 24 out of 25 free throws. Awesome!
Additional donations were made directly to the campaign through Lakeside Congregation’s NET-Raiser Team – Lakeside Congregation for Reform Judaism - increasing the team’s total donation to more than $3,000.
Thanks to Lucy Hoffman, Sara Hall, Bailey Weiss, and the whole Lakeside Team for putting together an exciting event and for your continuous support to Nothing But Nets!
