Community joins leukemia battle
By Bruce Watson

The Richfield Springs Central School (RSCS) staff continues to forge ahead with their plans to host a Chinese auction, spaghetti dinner and the Donkey Basketball game on Feb. 27 and 28 to benefit Leukemia research that benefits all patients who have been diagnosed and treated for this disease.

  “So many people have been affected in some way by leukemia,” said teacher Mary Weingates. “This event is in honor of not only our former principal Mary Tobin, but also honors all other community members who have or are battling this disease.”

The spaghetti dinner will be in the RSCS cafeteria on Feb. 27, from 4:30 to 7 p.m., with the donkey basketball game beginning at 7 p.m. in the gym.  

Among the businesspeople playing in the donkey basketball game will be Jim Murphy, pharmacist at Kinney’s; Heather Teachout, of the Tally-Ho; Justin Conklin, of Price Chopper; Dr. Pam Lea, DVM; Brad Smith, of the Richfield Springs Sports Boosters; Andrew Christman, of NBT Bank; Dave Bunce, of Rudy’s Express Tuxedos; Teresa Bunce, of ‘The Velvet Dog Grooming Salon in Herkimer; and Tammy Vezza, of New York Pizzeria.  

In addition to the game, the Bunce’s will also be participating in the Chinese auction.  

“It is awesome that nine community members have stepped up to ride donkeys and help with this effort.  I am amazed at how people have opened their hearts, wallets, and business have donated prizes,” RSCS teacher Chuck McMann said.

 Tickets for the spaghetti dinner are $5.50 for senior citizens. Adult tickets are $6.50, and children ages 5 to twelve are $4.50.  The donkey basketball game pre sale tickets are $5 and can be purchased at RSCS. Tickets will be sold at the door for $7 a piece.
