Undefeated Greencastle-Antrim will be involved in the fifth annual Dunks for Drew varsity boys’ basketball showcase that will be held Saturday, Feb. 4 at Chambersburg Area Senior High School featuring a quadruple-header that raises money for the Drew Michael Taylor Foundation of Shippensburg.

The lineup begins at 3 p.m. with a varsity boys’ game between Shalom Christian Academy and Cumberland Valley Christian School. The 4:30 matchup is a varsity girls' game featuring Chambersburg versus Shippensburg. In the final two varsity boys' contests of the night Milton Hershey will take on Shippensburg in the 6 p.m. game and the nightcap at 7:30 p.m. featuring the Greencastle-Antrim Blue Devils squaring off against Chambersburg.

At halftime of the 7:30 game, Chambersburg Mayor Lagiovane and school district administrators from Chambersburg and Greencastle-Antrim will participate in a foul shooting contest.

The foundation was created by former Scotland School for Veterans' Children boys’ basketball coach Randy Taylor and his wife, Marcie, after the death of their 3 1/2-year-old son, Drew, in a June 2006 auto accident.  

The Drew Michael Taylor Foundation currently funds Ready, Set, Go!, a kindergarten readiness program in the Shippensburg Area School District; and Drew's Hope, a grief and loss support program for children, teens and their families throughout Western Cumberland, Franklin and surrounding counties.
