A fund raiser for the Lady Knights girls basketball team was cancelled last week due to public concern for those involved.
A donkey basketball contest was scheduled for Feb. 21, at the Roby Dome, with proceeds going towards the Lady Knights basketball team. An explanation of what donkey basketball is can be found in last week's Enterprise.
However, some community members reasoned that the sport is a risk to humans and inhumane for the donkeys.
Dennis Brown of TG Kentucky, who has been the media contact and an organizer for the fund raiser, said superintendent Roger Marcum cancelled the event after concerns were expressed.
Brown said a fundraiser to replace the donkey basketball contest is in the works. Brown said he would inform the media when the replacement fundraiser was determined.
