BRICK – On Friday, March 23, the Brick Township PBA will host its 28th annual Helping Hands Benefit Basketball Game.

The game will feature members of the Brick Township Police Department playing the Brick Township Green Dragon Football team in a game of basketball.

The Brick PBA is hosting the game to assist a local family facing a financial hardship due to a child’s serious illness. This year the proceeds will go to the family of Carter Smith.

Carter is four years old and has been diagnosed with Spina Bifida in the form of Myeloshcisis. Carter also suffers from Hydocephalus. Carter has undergone multiple surgeries on his brain and spine and his vocal chords have been paralyzed. The Smith family has a substantial amount of debt that continues to increase. The Brick PBA wants to extend Carter’s family a Helping Hand.

Come out for a night of fellowship and community spirit. The game will be held at the Brick Township high School East Gym on Friday March 23 at 7 :30 p.m.
