Support the Community by Attending the Alley-Oop for Awareness Game January 28th

Support CHS and spread awareness by having a great time

Alley-Oop for Awareness has been a long-running tradition at CHS, with this year being the 9th game we have hosted. It started off as Alley-Oop for Autism but its title recently changed to be more inclusive of other disabilities. The event started when Mrs. Evans and volunteer parent Rob Petro introduced Alley-Oop for Autism as a way to spread awareness for disabilities. They originally used the donated funds from the event to support the MAAP services, a nonprofit organization that aims to inform people about autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. But then in recent years, the money was used to fund scholarships for peer tutors as a way to thank them for their hard work. The scholarship is a minimum of $500 for each peer tutor and is a useful tool that can help jumpstart their college career. To help raise money, the staff at CHS design a t-shirt each year that students can buy for $15 during their lunchtime or in Mrs. Evans’ room, A102. 

The game will be held on Saturday, January 28 at 6:30 PM in the gymnasium between the junior varsity and varsity basketball games. This game is a wonderful opportunity for students to benefit the community while also having fun. General admission is only $7, so if you have a few extra dollars laying around, buy a ticket and have some fun!
