In a joyous evening of basketball, the Rochester Adams Boys Basketball program held a fundraiser benefitting Dutton Farm on January 31st!

Adams Boys Basketball revived its charity basketball game that went on hiatus in 2021 due to COVID. The 2022 event took place on Monday, January 31, 2022 at 7pm at the Adams HS main gym. The athletes from Dutton Farm took on Adams Boys Varsity for an exciting match up where the Farmers were victorious over the Highlanders with a final score of Dutton Farm 43, Adams 32.

Adams JV and Varsity cheerleaders performed and led the crowd in chants and cheers supporting the athletes. At half-time, a heated game of “Lightening” raised additional money and earned prizes for the winners.

Adams Athletic Boosters collected tips at the concession stand for the cause. Dutton Farm sold over 250 slices of pizza with pies donated by Jet’s Pizza -Five Points in Auburn Hills. EveryBody by Dutton Farm had a pop-up shop featuring candles + bath and body products made by adults with developmental disabilities. Adams Cheer Dad Khris Lee captured all the action on film as the game day photographer. Between gate earnings, generous donations and t-shirt sales, the partnership between Adams Boys Basketball and Dutton Farm raised over $3,500. A fun time was had by all at this wonderful community event.
