All are invited to the Lyons Township High School North Campus Fieldhouse this evening to cheer on LT’s Special Olympic basketball teams for the second annual Special Olympics Pack the Place. Three Special Olympics basketball games will be played in one night. The Blue team will play Riverside-Brookfield at 6pm, Gold will play Downers Grove South at 7pm and White will also play Downers Grove South at 8pm. Admission is $2, and each ticket holder gets a chance to be picked at half-time of each game to shoot a half-court shot to win a t-shirt. All of the proceeds made tonight will be split between LT’s Special Olympics teams and the Best Buddies Club. Last year, LT bought new uniforms for two basketball teams and sent three Best Buddies members to a weekend long Leadership Conference over the summer from ticket sales.
