Our Feature Friday this week started as two business owners jokingly challenging each other to a basketball game, and turned into a community event for the ages. The event, Kingdom Classic, was planned by Ty Johnson (Owner of Pure) & Skip Lee (Owner of Flee Market), and was organized with the help of SNUG. With free food for children, bouncy houses, a DJ, and even a half time show featuring a young dance group. Mr. Johnson & Mr. Lee were able to bring out close to 1,000 patrons to witness both active and alumni PHS Basketball players for a very entertaining basketball game. While Team Pure won in a 86-83 comeback victory, its quiet clear the entire city of Poughkeepsie won.
There are plans to make a league this summer introducing several other businesses and a rematch is planned for August for Pure vs Flee Market!
