Farmington High School will host the 15th Annual Battle of the Middles, a December 13 charity basketball game with the goal of collecting canned goods, toys, and money for Farmington area families in need.
Middle school staff from the North – Warner Middle School and Farmington STEAM Academy – and the South – Power Middle School and East Middle School will play for bragging rights. But the real winners are clients served by the Neighborhood House of Farmington/Farmington Hills and the Farmington Area Goodfellows.
Neighborhood House provides support to local families year-round, while the Goodfellows hold a holiday drive to ensure that no child or senior goes without a Christmas.
New this year, the Jumpin All-Stars will entertain guests during a half-time show with fancy jump rope skills. The Battle will begin at 6:30 p.m. with doors opening for the event at 5:45 p.m. Farmington High is located at 32000 Shiawassee.
Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students/children, or $1 with two or more canned goods or free with a new, unwrapped toy.
Last year’s game raised more than $15,000; over the past decade, the Battle of the Middles has helped raise more than $91,000 and collected thousands of toys and non-perishable foods.
