Students, teachers shoot to raise dollars for tsunami victims

January 20, 2005

Albany- Some South Georgia teachers and students set out to change lives Thursday night when they went head to head in a hoop shoot.

It was Lake Park Elementary fifth graders versus the teachers. The game raised money to be donated to the Red Cross for victims of the Tsunami in South Aisa. Both teams will tell you, it was a close game.

"The teachers were ahead in the first quarter, I think maybe even in the second quarter, but the kids won," said teacher Tracy Ferrell.

The students did pull out the victory in the end with a score of 25 to 22. They raised more than $1,600.
