The community involvement was nothing short of amazing.

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The Lawrenceburg and South Dearborn communities have a lot to be proud of.
For the last month, student, coaches, parents and anyone else who's been paying attention banded together with a goal to raise at least $10,000 to donate to the Coaches vs. Cancer initiative.
Not only was that goal met, it was well surpassed.
On Monday, organizer and Tigers head coach John Blackwell announced a fundraising total of $15,022.22.
After a final small donation by Coach B. and Nicole, @CoachesvsCancer donation will be $15,022.22. 15k seemed like a good goal once we got by 10k and the 22.22 will be to honor Ms. Lauren Hill. Thanks to everyone for coming together like we did! #beatcancer @sdknightsbball— Lawrenceburg Tigers Basketball (@Tigers_Hoops) February 25, 2020
The total will go down as the single, largest donation from an Indiana high school basketball game.
