District 88 Foundation raises money to benefit students

On March 4, 15 teams competed in the Dennis Doyle 3-on-3 Classic District 88 Foundation Basketball Tournament at Addison Trail.

The annual event, which takes place in memory of Willowbrook staff member Dennis Doyle (who passed away in 2011), raised about $3,300 for District 88 students. Doyle came to Willowbrook in 1994, after several years of coaching basketball. He was the Head Basketball Coach from 1994 to 2006, as well as a Guidance Counselor. Doyle believed each person should have a passion and must compete each day to achieve his or her goals. For those who had the opportunity to know Coach Doyle, he truly was a Willowbrook Warrior in every sense of the word.

The tournament also featured raffles for Dunkin’ Donuts gift cards and two Bulls tickets to the March 24 game against the Philadelphia 76ers. The winner of the Bulls tickets was Tom Kucik, parent of Willowbrook alumni.

The District 88 Foundation is a member of the Partnership for Inspired Education (PIE) Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that serves public school students in District 88, Addison School District 4, School District 45 and Salt Creek School District 48. Founded in 2009, PIE is designed to be the foundation that supports a long-term partnership with the community, businesses, schools and, most importantly, the children served. For more information about PIE, go to www.piefoundation.org.

Funds raised by the PIE and District 88 foundations have been used to support students through initiatives such as providing computers and Internet access, subsidizing Advanced Placement (AP)/college-level tests and offering mini-grants for staff to develop instructional enhancements for students.
