WILBRAHAM – All boys and girls ages 10 to 14 are invited to participate in the local level of competition for the Knights of Columbus Free Throw Champion-ship on Jan. 7, 2012 from 10 a.m. to noon at St. Cecilia Parish Center, 7 Maple St.

Boys and girls are challenged to make as many free throws as they can out of 15 shots. This is a free event sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.

This event will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes per child. Participants are required to show proof of age (birth certificate) and parental consent. All registration forms will be available the day of the event. All contestants on the local level are recognized for their participation in the event.

The Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship is sponsored annually, with winners progressing through local, district, and state competitions.

The Knights of Columbus is an international Catholic Family fraternal service organization with nearly 1.7 million members in more than 13,000 local councils. Last year, Knights donated 60 million volunteer hours and $143 million to charitable and benevolent causes, sponsoring projects to benefit their church, councils, communities, families and youth.

The Wilbraham Knights of Columbus Council has donated more than $21,000 to The Grey House, Life’s Choices, Habitat for Humanity, Massachusetts Citizens for Life, Haiti Relief efforts, and most especially The Community Survival Center in Indian Orchard.

In addition to three $1,000 scholarships awarded to St. Cecilia graduating seniors, other funds supported other community/church activities such as Christmas Toy Drive, Birthday for Jesus Program, Boy Scout Eagle Award recognition, as well as Basketball and Soccer athletic programs for youngsters.
