Doors will open at 5 p.m., and the game will start at 6 p.m.

Hoops for Hope is the major fund-raiser for the Suicide Prevention funding group. This small, dedicated group of students want to help empower the school and the community to prevent suicide.  All monies raised will go toward programming used at the high school level to educate on suicide.

The game will feature students, teachers, and members of the Watertown Fire Department. The game will be refereed by Chief of Police Michael Lawn.

Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door. There will be food, refreshments and live music.
