Celebrity Basketball Game Set to Raise Funds & Honor Late Grand Blanc Girl
It will be four years on February 18th that the parents of 10-year-old London Eisenbeis experienced their worst nightmare. Although four years have passed, London's legacy lives on, and an upcoming celebrity basketball game is set to honor the Grand Blanc student.
During a family getaway to a local waterpark back in 2018, London's heart stopped beating after her heart went into an abnormal rhythm as she went down the four-story waterslide tube, which sent her into cardiac arrest. Sadly the vibrant and active 10 year old passed away from what was an undetected heart rhythm condition called Long QT Syndrome.
Since then, London's mother Tina has made it her mission to educate and provide AED’s throughout the community in an effort to save lives through the London Strong Foundation. Through the foundation, she hopes to stress the importance of heart screenings for children and emphasize the importance of CPR/AED training.
The Big Game
A big part of allowing the London Strong Foundation to provide classes and AED's relies on fundraiser efforts. To honor not only London but to also help raise much-needed funds, the Tri-City WELS Men’s Basketball League will host the 7th Annual Celebrity All-Star Game on March 27th.
The game, pitting WNEM TV5's Chris Easlick against Kylee Miller of Detroit's CW50 & CBS 62, along with their teams, against each other, will take place at Michigan Lutheran Seminary beginning at 5:00 pm. Look for All-star players such as Darien Harris, Andrew Keller, Anthony Dirrell, and Victor Arroyo of Big Brother hitting the court.
