Staff will take on students in annual fundraiser
The Taft High Union High School Future Farmers of America will host the sixth annual donkey basketball game at Mullen Gym at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 6.
The game pits staff vs. students and is usually a very close match.
The hilarious game is played with five-member teams. Players must be atop a donkey to shoot or pass the ball. They may get off the donkey, but must lead it by the reins, for rebounds and loose balls. The humor comes when the humans try to get on the donkeys too fast and fall off and when the donkeys have their own ideas on what they want to do.
The game is a fund-raiser for the FFA.
Admission costs $5 in advance with tickets available at the TUHS business office or from any FFA member. Tickets purchased at the door will cost adults $6, children 6-12 $5 and those under 6 will be admitted free.
For more information, call the FFA at 763-2300, ext. 481.
