On Jan. 25, Long Beach High School hosted its “Beauty and the Beast” event, where varsity gymnastics and varsity wrestling teams shared the gym for their respective meets to benefit Memorial Sloan Kettering Kids.
The event included performances by the varsity cheerleaders with simultaneous competitions taking place on both sides of the gym. Through the sales of t-shirts, food and other items, the teams along with parents, coaches and community members raised over $5,500 for childhood cancer.
