The Northwestern Wildcats girls basketball annual charity game was held Jan. 23 at Corder Gym in Albion.

Team members chose America’s VetDogs® – The Veteran's K-9 Corps, an organization that serves the needs of disabled veterans and active duty personnel, to be the recipient of funds raised at this year’s game.

The team raised a total of $650, and the game’s sponsor, the Albion VFW #2341, donated $500, making the night’s total donation $1,150.

Any Northwestern students wearing spirit or red/black clothing were admitted for free to the game. The girls’ basketball team offered free admission several times this season to students wearing team colors.

The "Lay-up for Pups" charity game included raffles, a 50-50 drawing, t-shirt sales and half-court shots for $1 at halftime, all to raise money for America's VetDogs.

Each year, the lady Wildcats hold a charity game. The seniors choose the recipient of the funds raised.

“We all wanted to do something for animals, and I wanted to tie in the military aspect,” said senior Scarlett Seneta, who has enlisted in the U.S. Navy.
