The Berkeley Heights Education Foundation (BHEF), along with its Partner in Education, Suburban Optik of Berkeley Heights, will hold the 16th annual all-star Faculty Basketball Game at Governor Livingston High School on Tuesday, March 12 at 7 p.m. Talented teachers, administrators and staff will be showcased in the hometown version of “March Madness” as they battle it out under the backboards and provide an evening of must-see entertainment. The game is always a highlight of the year for both kids and parents alike in the Berkeley Heights community and it is one of the BHEF’s largest fundraisers.
This year’s all-star event will feature special guest vocalists who will perform the national anthem. There will also be a flag ceremony lead by Ira Jersey and the Pack #386 Color Guard. Elementary school students will entertain the crowd throughout the event as well. The annual 50/50 raffle will also add to the evening’s excitement!
Tickets are $7 in advance and $9 at the door (only until they are sold out.) Again this year, tickets can be purchased online at the BHEF’s website, www.BHEF.info. Due to gym capacity limits and safety regulations, ticket sales will be limited. Doors will open at 6:15. The game promises to be another exciting, nail-biting, buzzer-beating event! If you have specific questions about the game, please email the BHEF at basketball@BHEF.info. The BHEF is grateful to Suburban Optik, of Berkeley Heights, for choosing to be a Partner in Education and sponsoring this event.
