The basketball programs at Terrell County High School and Terrell Academy came together for a fundraiser on Tuesday night.

The girls' teams and boys' teams played each other in front of a fairly large crowd. The schools charged admission and opened up the concession stand.

The proceeds will be split evenly between the four programs.

"At the last minute we came up with the idea of trying to do something to bring the community together," said Lady Greenwave coach Tammye Ware. "As well as to raise money for each team."

The money will go to travel expenses, shoes, and other equipment.
