Rivals Carson, Douglas raise over $10,000 for crash victims at staff basketball game

Students and community members raised over $10,000 Wednesday night for victims of a recent car crash.

CARSON CITY, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) — Rival high schools Carson and Douglas came together Wednesday night to raise over $10,000 for the victims of a recent car crash, six of whom were Carson High students.

The annual staff basketball game was moved to Carson High and turned into a charity event with the theme 'Community first, rivalry second.'

Douglas staff pulled away late to win the contest 48-42, but students and community members said the final score wasn't all that important.

A GoFundMe account for medical costs has also raised over $48,000 as of early Thursday morning.
