    On Saturday April 9th, the Palisade Prep Boys Basketball team held their annual spring fundraiser. A pancake breakfast at Applebee's on Executive Blvd in Yonkers. Parents, teachers from the school and friends of the players and coaches filled the restaurant to help raise money for the boys off season program. With over 75 people in attendance and others giving donations the boys were able to raise $1,500 to help pay for team camps and summer leagues.
