Lo-Ellen Park staff and students

Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School’s Senior Girls’ Basketball Team hosted a charity basketball tournament on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 in support of the NEO Kids Foundation. The tournament included a series of 3 on 3 games, where each team pledged $50 to participate. In total, the tournament raised $3,500 for the program. Over the past two years, the school has raised some $8,000 for the charity. As a result, Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School will be the first school to be added to the NEO Kids Foundation donor wall in the new year.
