Clark Drug Treatment Court program to sponsor America Free Throw Contest at Founder’s Day PDF Print E-mail

Friday, 19 June 2009 00:00
    The Clark Drug Treatment Court Program will sponsor the first ever Red, White and Blue All-America Free Throw Contest at the Charlestown Founder’s Day Festival on June 26 and 27.
    The Free Throw Contest at Founder’s Day will be the first of several festival appearances for the Drug Treatment Court in order to increase public awareness and to raise funds for the rehabilitative program. Community volunteers and past graduates of the program are welcomed to help at the festival.
    The cutback of available federal grant money to fund the Drug Treatment Court program makes public fundraising absolutely essential. This state certified substance abuse program does not receive a budget from either the county or state government.
    “We are proud to unveil the All-America Free Throw Contest at Founder’s Day,” said Clark Superior Court Judge Jerry Jacobi. “The contest will be fun and entertaining for players and spectators to show their support for IU, UL and UK. The contest will continue at the 4H Fair next month and at other community festivals.”
    “The festival committee has been very supportive of our first effort and we will show our appreciation by returning to Founder’s Day next year.” Jacobi added. “We want to contribute to the family atmosphere at this marvelous festival.”
    The All-America Free Throw Contest will be decorated in patriotic colors of red, white and blue colors. Players will show support for their favorite team by making free throws and adding points to the cumulative score of Indiana University (white), University of Louisville (red), and University of Kentucky (blue.) Players will designate their favorite team to receive the credit for each made free throw worth one point each.
