FUNDRAISERS:

BOYS BASKETBALL SHOOT-A-THON:  On Saturday, November 17th, we are doing our annual shoot-a-thon. Last year we made over 6,000 3-pointers during this event. THIS YEAR WE WILL BEAT THAT NUMBER! Every player is required to make 100 3-pointers, therefore some players have to make 200 or more 3-pointers this Saturday. It's not easy to do, but we believe WE NEED TO EARN EVERYTHING! That's why we are not selling anything other than hard work that will translate into yet another exciting basketball season in Des Plaines.
