The Blue Knight basketball team donated proceeds from its winter basketball camp to Southington Community Cultural Arts, the organization that is transforming the historic Gura Building into a visual and performing arts center. SHS coach John Cessario and members of the varsity basketball team ran the “Can’t Get Enough Hoops” winter basketball camp in December.

A portion of the proceeds from the camp were donated to SCCA. The arts center is expected to open in September and will feature arts programming, classroom and studio space, an art gallery, a black box theatre, a retail art supply store, a soundproof music studio and more for our community.
