The school has been doing many fundraisers for the family since the operation, but none was bigger than Friday night.Fans who turned out not only were able to make a big impact with the Taylor family, they were also treated to a night of exciting basketball.The fifth- and sixth-grade Pioneer and Lady Pioneer basketball teams kicked off the action by playing against each other. It was a matchup of undefeated teams as each currently leads their respective Warren County elementary leagues with 8-0 records.
