BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ -  “March Madness” returns to Berkeley Heights with the annual faculty basketball game.  

The Berkeley Heights Education Foundation (BHEF), together with its Event Sponsor, The Smith Chiropractic Foundation of Berkeley Heights, will hold its 20th annual all-star Faculty Basketball Game at Governor Livingston High School on Tuesday, March 14, at 7 p.m.

In this traditional on court “battle for a cause,” district teachers, administrators, and staff will showcase their amazing basketball talents in a hometown version of “March Madness.” The game is always a highlight of the year for both kids and parents alike in the Berkeley Heights community and serves as one of the BHEF’s largest fundraisers.

In addition to the game, attendees can see other community talent in action.  This year’s all-star event will feature special guest vocalists who will perform the national anthem.  There also will be a flag ceremony lead by Ira Jersey and the Pack #386 Color Guard.  Elementary school students showcase their talents.  Of course, the annual 50/50 raffle will add to the evening’s excitement!

Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door (space permitting).  Due to gym capacity limits and safety regulations, advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.   Visit www.BHedFoundation.org for advance ticket purchase. Doors will open at 6:15 p.m.  The game promises to be another exciting, nail-biting, buzzer-beating event!  

Anyone with specific questions about the game should email the BHEF at basketball@BHedFoundation.org.  The BHEF extends its thanks to The Smith Chiropractic Foundation and Patrick Smith for this important sponsorship.  

The BHEF is a nonprofit, volunteer fundraising organization that, for more than 20 years, has helped provide innovative hands-on educational programs and cutting edge technology to students across all six schools in Berkeley Heights.  We are a complimentary organization to the individual school PTOs, working to enhance the educational experience for all of our children.  To learn more about the BHEF, how you can get involved, and how to donate to the organization, visit the website.
