The Boys Basketball Team and Cheerleaders meet together for a team breakfast and designate presents to families in need as well as wrap the gifts for the children. The high school basketball players and cheerleaders delivered the gifts to the families in need as a surprise! Blue Christmas has been a tradition in Edgewood for 10 years. John Thomas, Director of Business Operations and the Boys Basketball Coach, coordinates this holiday operation. John shared in regards to Blue Christmas, "This is a great experience for our players and is something we look forward to every year. We appreciate all the help we receive from our counselors and the Success Program from the Butler County Educational Service Center."
In addition to Blue Christmas, other Edgewood Athletic teams spread Christmas spirit as well. Edgewood High School Girls Basketball sponsored two families for Christmas and the Edgewood High School Football Team and Cheerleaders sponsored a family for Christmas also.
