Local News

Spencer-Van Etten (18 NEWS) — A charity basketball game at Spencer Van-Etten High School raised money for two teachers and coaches. It was an alumni vs faculty fundraiser game for Brian Grub and Abby Gentile, both who teach and coach at the school.

Grub has an undiagnosed illness, and Gentile is battling with breast cancer. One organizer of the event said it was the least she could to show her support for two people she greatly admires.

“Abby and have just been such good teachers to me over the years, Brian Grub coached me in basketball and softball and I learned an immense amount from him, both on the court and on the field and general as a person,” Kelli Dhui.

This is the first annual fundraiser game, but Kelly Dhui says her and fellow organizers plan to make it an annual event.
