Monomoy Dollars for Scholars has issued the following report on their First Annual Hoop-A-Thon:
Balls were bouncing and swishing at all the baskets in the gym at the Monomoy Dollars for Scholars Hoop-A-Thon Friday March 17th. As Saint Patrick’s Day luck would have it Jamie Routhier took top shooting honors with 76 free throws made in the five minute time allotted. Students in all grades were invited to participate. Pledges were solicited prior to the event for each basket made with all funds going to the Monomoy Dollars for Scholars scholarship fund. Seniors to 8th graders were able to participate and just about $2,000 was raised. Christine Friedel with 64 baskets was the top female shooter. Nathan Amaker brought in the most money. The class of 2017 raised the most money and for that honor $500 was donated to their class fund by the organizers. Routhier, Friedel and Amaker also won a gift card and $250 scholarship to be given to them upon graduation. Gift cards were also raffled off to one participant from each class. Monomoy Dollars for Scholars have donated over 100,000 in scholarships, anyone wishing to donate can log onto the web site at chatham.dollarsforscholars.org Scholarships are given to students graduating from Monomoy High School regardless of residence. The organizers would like to thank the Boosters for providing refreshments, to all the generous donors and the students who put in the time to gather pledges and come out to shoot hoops. The Monomoy Dollars for Scholars is already planning next year’s event.
