Everyone Wins in Donkeyball Event, AED Project Raises $2,000

Written By Editor on 5/4/14 | 5/4/14

With over five hundred people coming out to the inaugural Donkeyball tournament Friday night, the AED Project of Schoharie County raised a total of $2,050.00 in support of their cause to increase local safety and awareness of sudden cardiac arrest.

April the donkey threw many a would-
be riders off her back Friday night
The crowd excitedly packed Cobleskill-Richmondville High School gym to watch four local school districts - Cobleskill-Richmondville, Middleburgh, Schoharie and Sharon Springs - send their best athletes to compete against one another, whilst attempting to ride donkeys. 

Hilarity ensued. While they represented some of the county's best high school basketball players on the court, that skill set didn't correlate into an ability of taming half a dozen donkeys, which resulted in players ending up on their backsides more often than not and inevitably low scoring games. 

Players were lucky if the donkeys had
the same idea in mind... most didn't.
In the end, although Schoharie would be crowned the victors of Friday's unique Donkeyball tournament with a overtime win over Middleburgh, the real winner of the night was the AED Project of Schoharie County that put together such an incredible event with only three weeks of time to do so.

Nancy Brumaghim of the AED Project told the Schoharie News that the amount raised was enough to purchase one AED defibrillator and a non-shocking training device. She would go to call the event a, "great success," and thanked everyone involved: including Green Mountain Donkeyball, fans, players, MC Brian Dineen, volunteers, Cobleskill-Richmondville and co-organizers and staff.
