All-star basketball team to raise funds for Isaac Wilcott

TUALATIN - The Harlem All-Star Comedy Basketball Team will be shooting some hoops to help raise money for Isaac Wilcott, a Tualatin High School graduate who is still fighting a brain tumor.

The all-star team will give an exhibition game at Tualatin High School on April 12. The game starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door, at Tualatin High's main office between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. or by calling 503-692-5765.

VIP tickets are $25 and allow ticket holders to meet with the all-star team an hour before the game to get autographs.

Money raised by the event will go to help the Wilcott family pay for the mounting medical bills from Isaac's treatment.

As a senior in high school a few months shy from his graduation, Isaac was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Less than a month after surgery, Isaac walked with the rest of the graduating class of 2006 to get his diploma. Now a student at Arizona State University, Isaac is still fighting a recurrence of his brain tumor.

A group of supporters called Friends of Isaac Wilcott have worked over the past two years to help the family raise funds to help cover the costs of Isaac's treatments.

A few members of the all-star team will be signing autographs at Haggen Food and Pharmacy in Tualatin on Saturday, April 5, to drum up buzz about the April 12 event. The all-stars will be at Haggen from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The April 12 event will also include food and raffle items.
