Absecon Police Department put up a great effort, but the Absecon Public Schools team came away with a 32-27 victory Thursday, May 25, 2023 in the Books vs. Badges Basketball Game fundraiser.

During the game, more than $1,000 was raised for the Absecon Police Department's Community Policing Fund, which puts on activities for the children of Absecon such as Hooked on Fishing and Shop with a Cop, and for the purchase of school recess recreation equipment.

“The first half was held tight until (I) banked in a buzzer beater 3 to close out the half," explained Mr. Morgenweck, who led the Books team. "From there, it was smooth sailing for the teachers. The teachers came away with the win in a 32-27 victory.”

Thank you to everyone -  Absecon police and school staff players, staff volunteers, Mrs. Liepe and the NJHS volunteers, the Absecon PTO, Mr. Seals, and the fans - who contributed to make this fundraiser possible. 

Organizers hope to host this event every year.
