Note: The Blair Basketball Club is working to put together a Shoot-A-Thon fundraiding event. Players will support their club while also competing for prizes and awards based on how well they shoot and raise money. Players will seek pledges from friends, family and neighbors before then taking 60 shots to earn money from their pledges. “We are very excited for this event,” said Jordan Lynch, a club representative.
