"Hoops For Humanity" Event Nets More Than $4k for Craniofacial Association

March 7, 2014 at 11:18 AM

SUMMIT, NJ - The students -- with a big assist from the faculty -- at Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School have raised more than $4,000 for the Children's Craniofacial Association via their annual "Hoops For Humanity" basketball game.

Organized by LCJSMS Assistant Principal Jeffrey Heaney, "Hoops For Humanity" featured a jam-packed gym, a pep band, the LCJSMS Step Team, students winning pizza parties for making three-point baskets and, yes, a game on the hardwood pitting LCJSMS' faculty against a mixed group of Girls and Boys school basketball team members.
The Student Team stormed from behind to beat the Faculty 76-67, setting off a celebration, but the mission and meaning of the event was clearly illuminated when -- at halftime -- a local family accepted a check for $4,114 on behalf of the Craniofacial Association.
 
The Children's Craniofacial Association (CCA), a national, 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with facial differences and their families.  The CCA addresses the medical, financial, psychosocial, emotional, and educational concerns relating to craniofacial conditions.
