Farmington Area Goodfellows, Neighborhood House Win Big in Battle of the Middles

The annual charity basketball game tips off Friday in the Farmington High School gymnasium.

The big winners in Friday night's Battle of the Middles charity basketball game, held in the Farmington High School gymnasium, weren't even on the floor. 

Families served by the Farmington Area Goodfellows and Neighborhood House charities will benefit from admissions and concession proceeds, as well as canned goods and new, unwrapped toys donated by the hundreds who packed the gym. Staff teams from Power Upper Elementary and East Middle Schools (South) and Dunckel Middle and Warner Upper Elementary Schools (North) played a short game that included plenty of hilarious moves that drew cheers from the crowd.

The game began with a moment of silence in memory of the 20 children and 6 adults killed in a Friday morning massacre at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, CT. 

If this year's proceeds match last year's ($4,856.10), Battle of the Middles will have raised more than $25,000 since its inception.
