Albany - - Some Albany State students came together Wednesday night to help out a fellow student in need. 

Students paid $2.00 to watch a greek-organization-sponsored benefit basketball game.

They raised $500 for Finetra Chambers who lost her apartment when fire swept through the Hidden Oaks complex back in July.

"We do like to think of ourselves as a family so when we heard that one of our fellow rams was down and out after her apartment burned down, my fraternity Kappa Alpha Psi along with the rest of the Divine Nine, we wanted to put together a charity basketball event that will benefit her," says Organizer Jhamare Hartsfield.

Seventeen units were damaged by fire, smoke, or water at Hidden Oaks.

Investigators still don't know what caused it.
