Kevin Palmer, Scott Gragg, Mary Purdy and Mary Steers are a handful of the athletes participating in the Silverton Rotary Club’s May Madness Alumni Basketball Extravaganza. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. May 19 at the Silverton High School Schlador Street Campus. Tickets are $5.
The event is a fundraiser for the Silverton Rotary. The club provides scholarships to graduating seniors, sponsors an international youth exchange program, gives dictionaries to fourth graders, provides clothes for needy children and contributes to polio eradication and clean water projects.
Rotary Club members are also selling $10 tickets for a drawing with prizes that include a Traeger barbecue, a week’s stay at a downtown Portland condo, a one-hour plane ride, wine baskets and more. Winners will be drawn at May Madness. Activities will also include a $500 Half-Court Shot sponsored by Bill Johnson of Allstate Insurance and an NBA-style 3-point contest.
