Circle W Sports to provide website for Casey L. Patrick Memorial Fund Basketball Game

March 3, 2021

Wellsboro, PA - Circle W Sports is launching a new website for the Casey L. Patrick Memorial Fund Basketball Game.

The game is named in honor of Casey L Patrick, a 2010 Wellsboro Area High School graduate who passed away in June 2011 from cardiac arrest as a result of a health condition known as Eisenmenger syndrome. Casey loved the game of basketball but could not play because of her condition. She was the manager of the girls team from middle school through high school and even her freshman year of college. Her love the basketball combined with her plans to be a teacher made this game a fitting tribute.

The annual game is a fundraiser for the Casey L. Patrick Memorial Fund which funds the Casey L. Patrick Memorial Scholarship. Proceeds from the game and donations are split between the scholarship and both Wellsboro varsity basketball teams. To date the game has raised $43,801.00 for the scholarship and $10,817.00 for both basketball teams. In the 2019 game raised $1,984.50 to split between the scholarship and the teams with an additional $1,905.00 donation going directly to the scholarship fund.

"We're happy to announce a brand new website for the Casey L. Patrick memorial basketball game," said Casey's brother Drew Patrick. "We hope to provide a place to learn about the Casey Patrick scholarship, learn about the history of the game, and relive some of the best moments from the game. We are happy to partner with Circle W sports and Ed Weaver to bring this website to the public."

"I have personally played in the game multiple times and have enjoyed every minute I've been on the roster. I've seen first-hand how the community has supported the Patrick family and this game throughout the years and how the students of Wellsboro benefit from the scholarship.
