Fundraiser 'burros' in for William Kelley Schools


The William Kelley Schools gym turned into a veritable barnyard Monday, Jan. 8, when donkey basketball returned to Silver Bay.

Students, teachers and local leaders donned a variety of helmets as they tried to coax their mounts into cooperating during the fundraiser for the WKS Parent Teacher Student Organization.

WKS underclassmen played the senior class and WKS staff played Silver Bay community leaders, with the winners facing off in a championship game.

Dairyland Donkey Ball in Chippewa, Wis., provides donkeys for similar fundraisers throughout the Midwest. The Silver Bay game earned nearly $1,500 for the PTSO.

PTSO President Nikki Meeks said they money will be used to support the WKS robotics team, After-Prom and school clubs.
