LUDINGTON – For those looking for something to do after the Ludington downtown trick-or-treating, they can head over to the Ludington High School back parking lot for the Ludington High School girls basketball teams’ trunk-or-treat event. The event will run 4 to 6 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 30 and is geared towards kids in grades six and under. 

This is the second year that the team has held the fundraiser. Coach Warren Stowe said he is excited to keep the tradition going.

“The girls and I agree that holding an event like this as a fundraiser is often more fun than begging people to buy things,” Stowe said. “It’s a great opportunity to hopefully raise some money for the program, but also give back to the community and interact with a lot of kids that hopefully will be involved in athletics and activities in Ludington and the surrounding communities.”

The team will be accepting donations throughout the evening and they invite anyone who wants to decorate their car and come participate is welcome to do so.

“There is no cost for cars to participate, we just ask that if you would like to decorate a car, you bring your own candy and contact myself prior, so I can inform participants on any last minute updates,” Stowe said. “Individuals that are trick or treating will be voting on the best decorated car and there will be some prizes for the winner. We will be accepting donations from those who would like to attend the event. All of the proceeds we receive from the event will go to the Ludington Girls Basketball program, we use the funds to fund our program. The program is in need of travel bags, practice equipment, and if possible another shooting machine.”

For those who might not be able to make the event and still want to participate, Stowe stated that there are a few ways they can do so.

“We are still looking for volunteers to decorate cars and pass out candy,” he said. “Anyone interested can contact me at [email protected]. We would love to see community members come out, dress up, and enjoy the event. If people aren’t able to decorate a vehicle or attend we are accepting candy donations or any other donations people may want to make.”  

The girls basketball season will be starting soon and Stowe, along with his team members are excited for another season, with hopes more people will be able to attend games this year.

“I am very excited to get the basketball season started,” he said. “I have a great group with a lot of returning experience. We had a great summer, playing a lot of basketball and spending time continuing to grow as a group. Our first home game is December 3, against Zeeland East, and we hope to have fans in the stands this year and would love to see everyone come out and support this great group of girls.”
