WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – Have you ever had the dream of being a basketball star?

The 8th Annual Charity Basketball Event hosted by the Bethlehem Apostolic Temple is happening next Sunday, Nov. 5 at the Highlands Sports Complex starting at 6 p.m.

All of the money raised goes towards their 33rd Annual Thanksgiving Food Basket Giveaway happening on November 18 at the North Wheeling Community Dream Center starting at 11 a.m.

They expect to help around three to four hundred families.  

“They can support by buying tickets from the players or buying tickets at the game they can support. By being a player sponsor. You can do that for $100 or an event sponsor. These are all the different ways. Or you can just go to our website at bethlehemapostolictemple.org.”
