Winter Gear Rains Down At War On The Shore

Halftime brought no calm to the storm that was the War on the Shore last night between the Kewaunee and Algoma girls basketball teams in Kewaunee. Hats, gloves, scarves and mittens rained down from the bleachers for the 2nd Annual Mitten Toss.

Students collect hats, mittens and scarves that fans tossed onto the court during halftime of the War on the Shore. Kewaunee topped Algoma, 48-36. Photo courtesty of Kewaunee PR Committee.

 

Kewaunee PR Committee Chair Lisa Schmidt says they collected 606 winter apparel items, about 100 more than last year.

The PR Committee worked with Paige Kassner to organize the Mitten Toss again this year as part of her Warm Hands Warm Hearts project. Schmidt says even though they’re rivals on the hardwood, the communities of Kewaunee and Algoma really came together for the cause.

Paige Kassner leads the countdown to the 2nd Annual Mitten Toss Friday night in Kewaunee. Fans brought winter gear to toss onto the court at halftime of the Kewaunee vs. Algoma girls basketball game. Photo courtesty of Kewaunee PR Committee.

 

Kassner will be distributing all of the items collected to schools, pantries, churches and other organizations in Algoma and Kewaunee.
