Tisa/Aidala Game Check Presented to Truesell Family

Staff from Veeder Elementary School were on hand at the April Board of Education meeting to present a check to a local family in need, money raised at the Tisa/Aidala Memorial Basketball Game this year.

The game, featuring players from Veeder and Shaker Road Elementary Schools, is an annual charity event. The proceeds raised through this event are used to assist a family, faculty or staff member of the South Colonie Central School District to offset a financial strain caused by extreme medical costs or a catastrophic life changing event.

This year’s proceeds were awarded to the Truesell family from Colonie Central High School.
