Game On for a Great Cause!
This year 52 teams and 81 volunteers participated in the 3-on-3 basketball tournament benefiting UDS’ All-Star Training Club. The tournament action took place at St. Vincent- St. Mary’s LeBron James Arena and Cosgrove Center on Saturday, July 28. New this year was the addition of an ATC Showcase area for patrons to play games, win prizes and learn about our inclusive sports programming. Combining that with the basketball competition, raffle and perfect weather, it was a great family-friendly, community event.
We are grateful to our sponsors, volunteers and everyone who worked hard to make this event a success!
