Ability Club to host fundraiser
Bay Area outreach program to take part in exhibition game
The Ability Club will be hosting a wheelchair exhibition basketball game in the Gymnasium on May 8.
It will be a fundraiser for the Contra Costa College athletic program and the Ability Club.
The exhibition game will pit students and faculty playing against the Bay Area Outreach and Recreation Program All-Stars, which is a non-profit organization that advances the lives of people with physical disabilities through sports and recreational activities.
"The Ability Club is a college club that raises disability awareness on campus and in the community," Ability Club adviser Eric Appel said.
This is a collaborative effort to raise proceeds for both worthy organizations.
"We've set a goal of $10,000," Ability Club President Dan Hardin said.
The event will be free and open to the public. Prior to the tip-off, which is set for 7 p.m., there will be a live concert by the California School for the Blind's jazz ensemble beginning at 5:30 p.m.
There will also be a halftime performance by CCC's own Guitar Club.
The event is still accepting individuals who are interested in participating and the BORP All-Stars will be providing extra wheelchairs.
"It's going to be a lot of fun," Appel said.

Checks are accepted and may be made payable to: CCC Foundation Friends of DSPS.
They may also be submitted at the DSPS Office in SSC-109.
