In early June, Maple Point Middle School (Langhorne) Coaches vs. Cancer fundraiser volunteers held a recognition ceremony. This year the school raised an astounding $23,530 for the American Cancer Society, making Maple Point the #1 fundraising team out of 43 in the entire Philadelphia region for CvC donations. Coach Fred Gross was named the Volunteer of the Year at the ceremony.
The entire school participated in this effort, which centered around a sold-out basketball tournament featuring teams from Maple Point and Carl Sandburg Middle Schools held in March. Money was raised through admissions, t‑shirt sales and raffle baskets donated by local business, families and individuals.
Congratulations to advisors Jason Pienta and Neil French, and all the Coaches vs. Cancer volunteers, players and contributors for this remarkable achievement.
