The final score for Monday night's Kennedy-WCA boys basketball game was 68-61 in favor of the host Eagles.
The more important number of the night was 500.
As in over $500 raised for the Connecticut chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The money was raised through a 50/50 raffle and the sale of T-shirts.
The cause is near and dear to Kennedy head coach Ryan Sullivan. Sullivan's wife Kacey was diagnosed with MS in 2008. The game was the first MS charity game and was known as "Two teams, One dream: Cure MS".
Both teams and their coaching staffs got together with the Sullivans for a photo at midcourt. Kacey Sullivan does the scorebook for Kennedy boys basketball.
Kacey and Ryan are the leaders of Sully's Shamrocks, a large group of supporters that take part in Walk MS and other fundraisers.
