INTERNET EXCLUSIVE - The donkeys are back
Donkey basketball returns to Badger

February 17, 2011

After a couple years away, the donkeys will return to Lake Geneva to put on another basketball show with the help of local teachers, students and emergency personnel.

On Sunday, Feb. 20, at 1 p.m. at Badger High School, Eastview teachers, Badger FFA members and personnel from the Lake Geneva fire and police departments will take to the court on donkeys in the return of Donkey Basketball.

According to a flier promoting the show, it is “wilder than a rodeo and funnier than a circus.”

In the first matchup, Eastview teachers will battle the Badger FFA and then the second game will pit the Lake Geneva Fire Department against the Police Department. The winners of those games will meet in the title game. Between games and throughout the afternoon, there will be other activities and raffles.

Tickets are $6 in advance and $8 at the door. The event benefits the Eastview PTO. Tickets are available by contacting Marleen at (262) 210-5200 or Gail at (262) 492-2213. For more information about donkey basketball, go to the Dairyland Donkey Ball website at
