BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - BHEF annual faculty basketball game postponed to snow-date of Tuesday, March 21st.

Not to fear, this annual family favorite event, presented by The Berkeley Heights Education Foundation (BHEF), together with its Event Sponsor, The Smith Chiropractic Foundation of Berkeley Heights, will still take place.

In a hometown version of “March Madness”, district teachers, administrators, and staff will showcase their amazing basketball talents to benefit the BHEF and every school in the school district. The game is always a highlight of the year for both kids and parents alike in the Berkeley Heights community and serves a 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 the CMS Vocal Ensemble who will perform the national anthem.  There will also be a flag ceremony with our Boy Scout Troop 68 led by Terrance Grossman, and the MKM students are invited onto the court to sing “We are Stars” before game tip-off.  Elementary school students perform between each quarter bringing a smile to every face in the gym.

A few tickets remain at $7 in advance and will $10 at the door (if not sold out).  Due to gym capacity limits and safety regulations, advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.   Please 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!  

If you have specific questions about the game, please email the BHEF at basketball@BHedFoundation.org.  The BHEF would like to thank The Smith Chiropractic Foundation and Dr. 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 our organization, please visit www.BHedFoundation.org
