6th Annual Coaches Charity Game
The rec basketball coaches from Ballenger Creek get together with the rec basketball coaches from Carroll Manor to play a friendly game of basketball for charity. All funds raised at this event are donated to a local Frederick charity … this year we have chosen “SHIP” of Frederick County. SHIP (Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership) of Frederick County is a volunteer non-profit community organization that addresses the urgent needs of the hundreds of Frederick County students encountering homelessness. SHIP help in four primary ways: Clothing, Food, Funding of extracurricular activities, and Emergency shelter where no other options exist. (For more information visit their website at www.shipfrederick.com.) Anyone that is not able to attend the event but would love to make a tax deductible donation can do so by check (made payable to SHIP of Frederick) and mail to 5455 Froggy Bottom Lane, Frederick, MD 21703.

The team pictures are being shipped to the league next week … as soon as they are received & sorted, they will be delivered to your Coach during practice. Estimated delivery date is mid-January.
