The Harlem Legends played against the Lake County All-Stars Saturday night to raise money for the Society of Rehabilitation and the United Way of Lake County.
The All Stars included Mentor High Boys Basketball Coach Bob Krizancic, Principal William Wade, Mentor Municipal Court Judge John Trebets, local businessman Marty LaMalfa and more; and they were coached by Mentor Schools Superintendent Matt Miller.
The All-Stars may have got the worst of it, but that does not lessen the fun the crowd had or the good the event did.
The proceeds from ticket sales went to the Society for Rehabilitation, a nonprofit charity that offers physical, occupational and speech therapy to the physically disabled.
Meanwhile, the money from concessions went to the United Way of Lake County.
The local chapter of the United Way kicked off its 2012-2013 fundaising campaign in August. Its goal is to raise $3.716 million, 2 percent more than the $3.671 million it raised last year.
All money raised during the 2012-2013 United Way of Lake County campaign benefits programs that focus on children and families, senior citizens, health and human services and basic needs in Lake County.
The event is organized by the United Way of Lake County, Mentor Schools and Society for Rehabilitation with dozens of volunteers from across the community.
