Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky’s public transit systems will face off at the second-annual Cross-River Shoot-Out: Metro vs. TANK on Feb. 18, 7 p.m., at Dixie Heights High School in Crestview Hills, Ky.
Metro and TANK employees will hit the court for a competitive and entertaining opportunity to raise funds to help low-income bus riders. In its first year the event generated about $5,000.
The 2012 charity basketball game will raise funds for the Everybody Rides Metro Foundation, which works with almost 100 partner agencies to provide bus tokens to low-income individuals who need help getting to jobs and jobs training. A portion of the proceeds will also go to Project RAMP, a new community foundation created to give financial assistance to registered Regional Area Mobility Program (RAMP) users that find it difficult to personally fund their transportation on RAMP.
Admission to the game is a $2 suggested donation at the door. Donations and sponsorships for teams or individual players are also available, call 513-632-9246.
