Police, Faculty Members Join Forces to Ball For A Cause

November 22, 2013 at 2:10 PM

SUMMIT, NJ - A true community is one that lives, works, and plays together.  It was in that spirit -- and in the spirit of giving endemic to the upcoming holiday season -- that members of the Summit Police Department, the Summit High School (SHS) and Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School (LCJSMS) faculties came together in the "Ball For A Cause" event.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the 2014 Police Unity Tour, whose motto is "We ride for those who died," and was established to raise awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who fallen in the line of duty. In 2013, more than 1,700 law enforcement members rode from their home states to Washington, D.C.  This year, 15 Summit Police officers, including Chief of Police Robert Weck, will make the ride on their own time to honor the women and men who have died.
In the first game of the evening, the combined faculty team defeated the Summit Police Department team, 33-26, building a nine-point halftime lead and never looking back. Jeffrey HeaneyLCJSMS Assistant Principal, spotted up and drained two-long range threes to pace the faculty.
In the evening's second game, billed as a "town bragging rights grudge match", the SHS faculty downed the LCJSMS faculty 48-45, behind strong play from Kelly Coyle.
In addition to the Unity Tour ride effort, the real winners on the night were Summit's residents, who will undoubtedly benefit from the relationships that develop and strengthen through friendly competition.  "We all work for a common cause, the people of Summit," said Heaney.  "it is a win-win, this helps us get to know each other even better, and also have a lot of fun in the process."
