Slam Jam 2012 was a fundraiser to benefit an orphanage in Honduras - one of the 9 homes of Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos. This spring, the students at EMS chose to sponsor a 9 year old boy named Carlos at NPH Honduras. They committed to raising $365 for the sponsorship, to help pay for Carlos' food, clothing, and education. The Slam Jam was one of the 3 fundraisers planned this spring.
For two dollars per player, middle school students and teachers formed teams for a 3 on 3 basketball tournament. Elementary students competed in a knockout competition. The event raised $427! This money will go toward our sponsorship of Carlos and the extra will go into a birthday fund, to help pay for birthday parties and gifts at the orphanage.
Thank you Mr. Gruden for this incredible video to help us remember the EMS community spirit we shared that day, and the outpouring of generosity that we've experienced this spring!
