This brings the total to over $316,000 given back to the athletic department over the last six years!  You can continue to help this organization in their support of both Bee Bee and Bullet Athletics by attending the dueling pianos at Boondocks Pub in Springfield. The event will take place on Saturday, March 30 with dinner starting at 6:30 pm and the show at 7:30 pm
