16th Annual Charity Basketball Event
Shoot some hoops to help families in need.
The Shannon Daley Memorial Fund is proud to announce its 16th Annual Charity Basketball Event. The Readington Teachers and Readington Men’s All Star Team will once again take on the world renowned Harlem Wizards.
The Harlem Wizards are one of the greatest basketball show-team organizations to ever “lace it up and let ’em fly.” Each event at which the Harlem Wizards perform offers a rare combination of individual athleticism, teamwork, and entertainment for every fan in attendance.
The Shannon Daley Memorial Fund mission is to assist local families facing financial hardship due to a child battling a serious ailment. The first recipient is 19 month old Parker Hoelper from Flemington who has biliary atresia and had a liver transplant. The second recipient is 8 year old Ray Fantel from Kendall Park who has Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type 1 which is an incurable, terminal disease. The third recipient is 5 year old Jonathan Mason from Clinton who has been diagnosed with Sotos Syndrome and will need heart surgery in the near future.
The event will be held Wednesday March 8th, 2017 at Hunterdon Central Regional High School Fieldhouse in Flemington, New Jersey. Game time is 7:00 PM. Hunterdon Central Regional High School is located on Route 31 in Flemington. For further directions call (908) 782-5727.

How We Use Donations
Paying Medical Expenses
Times can be tough, and when you’re trying to be strong for your children, it can be quite a challenge to stay afloat financially. We want to help Readington Township families and their sickly children so that they may live a wonderful life.
Improving Quality of Life
Sometimes something small can make a big impact. Whether it’s retrofitting a van or buying a child a wheelchair, we try to help our recipients in ways that can most make their lives easier.
Help Parents do What They Do Best.
It’s not easy to be a parent, and everyone could use a helping hand. Coupled with a serious illness of your child, a family can be saddled with a host of problems- finance issues, stress, and more. We are here to help Readington Township residents, and one of the ways we have done so is by paying mortgages to allow a parent to stay home with their sick child. It’s hard to stay afloat, and we understand.
