UNION TOWNSHIP | Union Center Elementary School and John Simatovich Elementary jointly hosted the Harlem Wizards basketball team as a fundraiser for the parent-teacher organizations.
For the fundraiser event, the Wizards team played basketball against the home team of the Bearcat Ballers made up of teachers from both elementary schools, Union Township Middle School and Wheeler High. The Wizards organization held a pep rally at all four of the UT schools, and then played the game that night. All volunteers at the night's event were elementary teachers. Approximately $10,000 was raised and will be shared between the two elementary schools.
Although the Bearcat Ballers team lost to the Harlem Wizards, they still considered the event a win for the schools.
