Deepwood hoops events a sure-lock winner

Tuesday's scrimmage between South and Kirtland is the first of several events coming up to benefit the Deepwood Foundation and Broadmoor School.

Now, I'm biased, as has been well documented, but I suggest to all fans of basketball and non-fans to attend and participate when your schedule allows. It is not a lot of money, but the effort and support goes a long way.

The scrimmage between Kirtland and host South starts at 6 p.m. There is no set cost at the door, it is a donation that will get you in the door. Sounds like a little will do alot for those in need that Deepwood helps every day.

On March 21, a team of area coaches will take on the undefeatedBroadmoor Bobcats at Mentor High School. The charge is $3 at the door with all proceeds going to Friends of Deepwood.

If you haven't been to one of these events, you are missing out. It's not about the money or the attendance figures, it is about what it does for folks in Lake County that could use the help.

Get out and do some good Tuesday or on March 21. If you are a fan of basketball, or if you are just a fan of giving when possible and doing something for others that should be good for you as an individual and for the human spirit.

But again, maybe I am just too biased. Or maybe I just see the good these benefit games do every day in my own life and in others.

Something like that.
