Jam the Gym Fundraiser is a Win for the Community
CMCC men’s team took the lead with just over a second left to go in the game, only to have the Auburn Police Department All-Stars execute a great play led by Chief Phil Crowell to score the winning basket right at the buzzer and take home a 95-94 victory.
All proceeds from the game benefit the Auburn PAL Center, a community facility that provides at-risk youth in the Auburn area with a safe, fun, and educational place to go. This is the fourth year that the Auburn PD and student athletes have squared off for this great cause. The PAL center is completely funded by community donations.
“It serves a population I think is very much in need,” said PAL board member and head coach Dave Gonyea. “Fundraising is critical because we don’t receive any government support.” Student athlete Cam Duncan added that “we just want to give back and show our stuff . . . We’re a community college, we do things for the community.” Watch more about the Jam the Gym game at WCSH6.com.
