The first annual Conway Celebrity Basketball Jam is set for April 22nd at 6 p.m. at the Buzz Bolding Arena.
The event, a fundraiser for Woodrow Cummins Elementary School, will feature Conway Public Schools' employees facing off against local celebrities on the basketball court.
Woodrow Cummins' Assistant Principal Gary Logan says the basketball battle will definitely be something to see.
"This is going to be an awesome event that will bring the whole community together for some fun," says Logan.
Participants confirmed so far include Mayor Tab Townsell, as well as representatives from local churches, all of Conway's elementary schools, the Conway School Board, and more.
Proceeds from the event will help Woodrow Cummins fund a new running track at their school.
"The whole school is involved in putting on this event," says Logan. "Each class is putting together a themed basket for the silent auction. We will also have vendor booths and a concession stand with my famous BBQ and other great food items. This will be a night to remember!"
