Basketball and Lasagna a Success for the Monroe Area Community Foundation

January 30 was a day filled with boys and girls basketball games in the gym, as members of the Monroe Area Community Foundation sold chances for theme baskets in the lobby and NHS high school students served lasagna dinners in the cafeteria.  During half time of the varsity boys game against Valleyview, the winning raffle ticket holders were announced.  The lucky few were:  Go, Play and Eat basket-- Leann Peck; Cofffee and Tea basket--John Singleton; Cincinnati basket--Matt Long; Hornets basket--Don Garver;  Valentines basket--Mindy Bauer; Family basket--Evelyn Muree;  boys' signed basketball--Will DeBord;  girls' signed basketball--Teri Reese.  The contents of the baskets were donated and assembled by the staff at Monroe Local Schools.

John Singleton, executive director, and Gina Miltenberger, development committee chair, combined their talents to coordinate this event.  As a result, the foundation earned more than $2000.  These monies enable the MACF to continue its goal of improving the lives of the citizens of Monroe.   Call John at 513/478-8112 for more information about the foundation.
