Even though the prep basketball season is over and your favorite college team is either still playing or has long since been eliminated from this year's national championships, the time for Jack Hawkins Memorial Scholarship play is just around the corner. In fact, Tuesday, April 23, is the target date for all those athletes who wish to play a little more basketball and remember one of the all-time great basketball fans, Big Jack Hawkins.
Games begin at 6 p.m. at Delta High School with the participants in this year's games coming from the staff of Delta High School, Delta Middle School, Lincoln Elementary School, and Garnet Mesa Elementary School.
The cost for this year's evening of hoops is $8 for adults, $6 for students (7-12), and $4 for children (K-6).
Wait! There's more! This year's play will feature the antics of Donkey Basketball.
It's not only the Jack Hawkins Memorial Scholarship Donkey Basketball Game that will be available for the public's pleasure. There will be another Chili cook-ff that features all you can eat for just $5. The eating begins at 5 p.m. You can choose from four different competitors who will be vying for top honors in the cook-off. Master chefs from Delta County Ambulance District, Delta Volunteer Fire Department, Delta Police Department, and the Delta County Sheriff's Department will be concocting culinary delights to tickle (or assault) your taste buds.
There will also be a silent auction for a variety of items.
The list of Donkey Basketball sponsors includes Shreeves Automotive Repair, Delta Auto Parts, INC., Awesome Cross Fit, Sunflower Room, Style Matrix, C & R Rocks, and Beauty & The Bling.blog comments powered by Disqus
