Two local schools known for being hated rivals are coming together in the midst of tragedy.

Eastlake North and Willoughby South have gotten together to plan a charity basketball game to benefit those affected by the Chardon High shootings.

Matt Duffy’s South High football team will team up with the gridders from George Burich’s Eastlake North squad.

The game will be played at Willoughby South High gym on Friday night, March 9th.

Tip off is 7:30 p.m.

There is no admission charge, but organizers will be collecting donations at the door, with all money going to the Chardon fund.

The football teams will be intermixed with players from both schools, and will be divided into two groups Team Chardon (Coached by Matt Duffy) wearing red t-shirts, and Team Hilltopper (Coached by George Burich) wearing black t-shirts.

Following the benefit game, Willoughby’s Panini’s is sponsoring a post game social with 100% of your bill being donated to the Chardon High School fund.
