Donkey ball brings in big bucks for Monticello after prom

Posted:
MONTICELLO (KWWL) -

"Pin the Tail on the Donkey" isn't the only game the four-legged animals star in Donkeys took to the court for an annual prom fundraiser in Monticello Monday night.

Monticello school coaches took on members of "Ignite" young professionals group.  The junior and senior class also played and the seniors took the championship title in an overtime win.

The game works like traditional basketball, only players had to be attached to their assigned donkey at all times.

Beth Welsch is a Monticello After Prom Committee chair.   "It's so much fun to see the kids enjoy it.  The donkeys put on their own little show. They are trained to do this, and they know exactly what they're doing!"  said Welsch.

The money raised from ticket sales funds a safe after-prom party for the high school.
