Starmont FFA Hosting Donkey Basketball Game

Tonight should bring some laughs at Starmont High School’s Spectator Gym in Arlington.

The Starmont FFA Chapter is hosting donkey basketball. Starmont student Gabrielle Moellers says the school did it years ago and they wanted to bring it back.

Dairyland Donkey Ball from Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin is bringing live donkeys for the players to ride on while they try to shoot baskets and play a competitive game of basketball.

And Moellers says it’s the students versus the faculty in tonight’s game.

Tonight’s Starmont donkey basketball game starts at 7 pm, with tickets available at the door. The cost is ten dollars, with all proceeds going to the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital.
