BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ- Students, parents, teachers and more flooded Governor Livingston for the 21st annual BHEF Faculty Basketball Game on Tuesday night. Over 800 people attended the sold out event to cheer on the faculty and raise money for the schools. 

Opening with bagpipes and a flag ceremony and singing of the National Anthem -- performers from each elementary school and Columbia Middle School entertained the crowd during time-outs and breaks between quarters.  

The game brought on a rivalry between all six Berkeley Heights schools that brought an electrified energy to the students cheering their faculty on. The Red Team controlled play, but the Blue Team had a spirited comeback after halftime that just fell short. The Red Team won the game 55-46.

"This is an event that brings the entire community together," BHEF President Carla McGlynn said, "We had representatives from every single school here. Whether it was players, entertainers, we had cheerleaders here, every school was represented. And all the money that was raised here today is all going back to the schools. It is the best community event that we have ever had in all 21 years."

This year the event was supported by two sponsors: Smith Chiropractic and Peak Medical. "This is the first year we had two co-sponsors. It just goes to show how much our community wants to contribute to the Ed Foundation," said McGlynn.
