Teachers-students basketball game benefits Relay for Life

The Key Club of John F. Kennedy High School is sponsoring a teachers-vs.-students basketball game starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 28.

The game will be played at the school, located at 13505 Kennedy Drive, just south of Northline Road.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students. All proceeds will be donated by the Key Club to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, scheduled for June 2-3 at Heritage Park in Taylor.

The Key Club is an international student-led organization that provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership. A Key Club must be sponsored by a local Kiwanis Club. The Kennedy Key Club is sponsored by the Dearborn Outer Drive Kiwanis Club.

Taylor resident Leonard Walkusky, who is a member of the Dearborn Outer Drive club, said the Kennedy Key Club has been involved in a variety of worthwhile community events, including Toys for Tots donations to Children’s Hospital, making and sending valentines to senior citizens living at a nursing home and writing letters to U.S. troops in the Middle East. Walkusky also advises the Key Club at Harry S. Truman High School in Taylor.

The Kennedy Key Club also is seeking sponsors for the Relay for Life, which is the signature fund-raising event of the American Cancer Society.
