Last weekend the TZ Boys Basketball baked cookies for the “Baking Memories For Kids Foundation”.   The foundation bakes cookies to sell and monies raised goes toward sending families who have children with terminal illnesses to Disney World for an all-expense paid, once in a lifetime trip that creates memories they otherwise may never get to experience.  The TZ Boys Hoops program baked for 7 hours last Saturday resulting in over 38,000 cookies.  For more info about the foundation check out www.bakingmemories4kids.com

On a very different but exciting field, TZ Varsity Football Coach Andy DiDomenico was one of only 55 High School Football coaches Nation-Wide and the ONLY NYS Coach to be selected by the NFL to take part in the first annual NFL Character Education Summit in Orlando, Florida last weekend.  Among the 55 coaches who attended the summit were 19 former NFL players who are now coaching at the high school level. Coach DiDomenico took part in multiple workshops and sat on a special panel examining the importance of infusion of character into athletics.
