Donkeys and baskeball for a fun fundraiser

Fundraising can be a pain in the -- well, you know what.

Not Tuesday, though, when the St. Paul Park/Newport Lions Club will hold a Donkey Basketball fundraiser to collect donations for its holiday baskets program.

The 7 p.m. event at Cottage Grove Middle School will feature local elected officials, public safety officials and District 833 teachers shooting hoops while riding rubber boot-clad donkeys across the gym floor.

Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Kids 12-and-younger, can get a free donkey ride during halftime.
