Spartans to donate 50/50 money to Tosa West coach

Feb. 5, 2010

The Brookfield East basketball program has found a small way to reach out and help Wauwatosa West coach Mike Landisch, who is battling kidney cancer.

The Spartans will have their usual 50/50 raffle tonight when first-place Menomonee Falls comes to East for a 7:30 p.m. game.

Fans purchased raffle tickets for three quarters and then the winner is announced. The winner keeps half the money and the program keeps the other half. Brookfield East will donate its half to Landisch and there is a hope that the winner will do the same.

"It is something we wanted to do for Mike and his family," East coach Andy Farley said. "We wish him best of luck."
