Teachers and school staff competed Thursday night in a sports-themed fundraiser to raise money for two Riverhead students in need.

“Crazy Sports Night,” sponsored by the PTO Executive Council, featured eight teams of school administrators and teachers facing off in scooter races, a 3-point basketball shot competition, a hula hoop chain, a tug-of-war and more.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Christopher Timpone, a 9-year-old Aquebogue boy who recently beat a rare form of bone cancer, and Michael Hubbard, who was seriously injured in a gel candle explosion last May.

High school principal David Wicks served as head referee, and Doc Greenberger and Lorene Custer were the Master and Madame of Ceremonies.

The event was inspired by a similar fundraiser at Eastport-South Manor High School.
