Coaches and special guests from local schools and organizations will flock together for an annual tradition, once again facing the Broadmoor Bobcats in a game of basketball in the Mentor High School gymnasium on Monday, March 26, 2018.
Broadmoor School, a part of the Lake County Board of Developmental Disabilities, hosts a basketball season each year for their students. The seasons culminates with the “Bobcats vs. Area Coaches” charity game. This year, proceeds from the event will benefit the Adaptive Physical Education program at Broadmoor and breast cancer awareness.
One of Lake Erie’s own, Dr. Katie Krammer, associate professor of special education, will play as an area coach for the third year running. She and her colleague Pam Martin, director of clinical experiences and partnerships, have a longstanding tradition of bringing LEC students to Broadmoor each semester to play the Bobcats in basketball.
In addition, Dr. Krammer holds a personal connection to Broadmoor. Her sons Trey and Quinn both have autism and have benefitted from services they’ve received through Broadmoor.
“I am thrilled to be invited to participate in such a fun evening that brings so many people from the community together to support this school and individuals with disabilities,” Dr. Krammer has said. “Seeing the students enjoying themselves and getting the chance to participate in such an exciting event is just the most heartwarming experience.”
The event on March 26 will feature area mascots, high school cheerleading squads, the Wickliffe High Drum Core, a 50/50 raffle and more. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m., and the game will follow at 7:00 p.m.
