Donkey Basketball Raises Scholarship Funds


CALERA, OK - A fundraiser for future college students with a twist. It was a packed house at the Calera High School gym Monday night to watch a highly-anticipated game of donkey basketball.

It was a fundraiser held by the Bryan County Peace Officers Association. Officers from across the county battled it out on the court to raise money for their scholarship fund. 

"It's a benefit to give back and it's fun and an awesome thing for the community to come back and give back for the cops and it's a good thing," said Melissa Patton, who attended the game.

Money raised from Monday night's game goes towards the Associations' scholarship fund. At the end of the year a college scholarship will be awarded to a member's child.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol's team, with help from a few donkey, won the championship game with a score of 2 to 0.
