Sitrin Celebrity Wheelchair Basketball Classic Set For Thursday [VIDEO]
The 13th annual Sitrin Celebrity Classic Wheelchair Basketball game is taking place on Thursday night at Utica College's Clark Athletic Center.
Local celebrities will take to the court to face off in wheelchairs against the Sitrin STARS.
Headlining this year's celebrity team are former Syracuse University Basketball stars Dwayne "Pearl" Washington and Eric Devendorf, Olympic bronze medalist Erin Hamlin and illusionists Leon Etienne and Romy Low.
Doors open at 6:00 with tip-off set for 6:30. Throughout the game there will be autograph opportunities with the celebrities, a 50/50 raffle, silent auction, and a raffle for the chance to participate in a three-point half-time competition against a celebrity.
Last year's game was a sellout with some 1,200 people attending.
The event raised more than $17,000 for the STARS Program.
