Two Fort Wayne City Council members will trade political points for three-pointers this month for a fundraiser to support Lighthouse Biblical Recovery Center.
City Councilmen Jason Arp, R-4th, and Tom Didier, R-3rd, are participating in March Gladness to raise money for the faith-based drug addiction treatment center. The councilmen are two of nine people who will compete in a basketball shoot-out on March 31 at Spies Field House.
"We'll be shooting some hoops. I'll be competing against my fellow council member there. I need to get to the gym and make sure I can still shoot a jump shot," Arp said, laughing.
Chuckling, Didier replied that he needs "to get myself in gear, because you're probably way ahead of me."
