It all started with a simple question,
"What can we do to help these kids?"
Rick Telander's five-part profile on the Orr Academy High School basketball team is moving and personal, heartbreaking and encouraging. Net Gain 2017 is our response - a fundraiser to support the Orr basketball program and a cultural exchange to positively impact young men from both Orr Academy and Lake Forest High Schools.
On Saturday, June 24 the Orr Academy High School basketball teams will visit Lake Forest High School to play two exhibition games - junior varsity will tip off at 2:00 and the varsity teams will play around 3:00.
In an effort for the teams to get to know each other, a luncheon at the Lake Forest beach pavilion is planned as well as an after game barbecue with the players, coaches and sponsors.
Net Gain 2017 promises to be an eye opening educational experience for all student athletes involved as well as a successful fundraiser for the Orr Academy's basketball programl.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 toward a multi-year commitment supporting Orr Academy High School's basketball program.
