(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. 

The total will go down as the single, largest donation from an Indiana high school basketball game. 

“I want to thank a lot of people," said Blackwell. "A lot of people pitched in. It took a lot of people buying a t-shirt, coming to the dinner, coming to the game, pitching in on the GoFundMe, the alumni game. It was a lot of fun and I appreciate Lawrenceburg and South Dearborn’s administration and Coach Reinhardt being on board.

There is hope that the Coaches vs. Fundraiser will happen again next season with South Dearborn playing host.
