Thank you to all that came out and supported the 2017 Ashtabula Special Olympics Basketball Event at Edgewood High School this past Saturday evening.

Edgewood boys and girls basketball players, cheerleaders, and fans rooted the Ashtabula Lakers on to a heart breaking 49-48 loss to Hope Academy. The Lakers held a narrow 1 point lead with 5 seconds left and as time expired, Hope Academy banked in a running shot from the foul line to give them the game winning 2 point basket.

Aside from the awesome basketball game… the 50/50, Chinese auction, and other donations that were given raised $1138.00 for the Ashtabula Special Olympics.

Thank you to Mario Marsilio from Pro-Cuts Lawncare for his generous donation of $300 to the great cause.
