Over 150 people made Our Lady of the Assumption School’s Gym Restoration Family Basketball Night a real ‘slam dunk’ on Saturday, April 1. The fun-filled evening consisted of six games comprised of different age groups with the final two matches including parents and OLA staff competing against older children. Approximately $2,400 was raised and will go directly toward restoring the Pelham Bay-based elementary school’s gymnasium.

OLA fathers lent their support and cheered their children on from the sidelines.
