Held at Dryden High School, the night will feature alumni from both schools teaming up for a chance to play one another again. The evening is a fundraiser for the Dryden basketball program that will also feature three-point contests, half-court shot contests and free-throw contests. Following the event, everyone is invited to head over to the Dryden Bar, where a portion of all food and beverage sales will be donated to the program.

Currently, both schools have a total of seven players each that will be participating with players ranging from graduating classes as far back as 1963’s Paul Grondin from Dryden up to 2013’s James Gilbert of Almont. According to Dryden coach John DelCampo, there are still at least six more players from each side that have shown interest and could participate in the evening’s activities.

Participation in the game is limited to players who have prepaid or inquired before the December 15 deadline, but all are still welcome to attend. Tickets will be available at the door for $5. Currently, there is no set time for the games to kick off as DelCampo is evaluating what would work best given the number of players involved.
