Last Friday, the Jefferson R7 School District held its annual “Hoops for Hope” basketball games vs. Herculaneum. It was a great night of our community coming out and supporting the local families that were honored and also supporting the basketball teams, all for a great cause.
The night involved 4 High School basketball games, raffles, and a silent auction all to help raise awareness and help local families.
We would like to thank the Wigger and McCarty family for sharing their story with everyone. We wish you nothing but the best moving forward and please know that the entire Bluejay Nation is behind you 100%.
We would like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Bill and Andrea Hammock who are the organizers of this event, they have worked tirelessly over the past few months to make this night a success.
