Heritage Middle School raised more than $2,000 during the event and had more than 630 people attend.
Last Monday (Jan. 23), Heritage Middle School welcomed the Harlem Ambassadors — basketball performers who provide wholesome, family entertainment — to help raise money for the Miracle Pennies Drive, which is for the Children’s Miracle Network.
The Harlem Ambassadors played basketball with a team from the middle school called the Heritage Miracle Shooters. The team consisted of students, teachers, and administration to create a fun, playful atmosphere.
More than 630 people attended the event, raising more $2,135.
The Harlem Ambassadors said it was the largest crowd they had ever seen before at a family night.
Other campuses in the Frenship district also are working to raise money for the Miracle Pennies Drives, including penny wars, dress up days and even a lip-sync battle.
