The Avery County Sheriff’s Office and Watauga County Sheriff’s Office will face off in a basketball game to raise money for Avery High School’s Sheriff Explorer program.

The Avery Journal Times reports the game will take place at Avery High School on Friday, April 5th at 6 p.m.

According to the report, the Explorer program gives sixth grade to high school students exposure to law enforcement practices to spark possible career interests in the field. The program is part of the Learning for Life Corporation, which is an affiliate of Boys Scouts of America.

Funds raised from the basketball game will be used for training equipment for students in the program.

Tickets for the game are $5. For more information, call (828) 386-8055.
