The tournament has been organized to benefit The Relief Zone, Inc. “The charity event helps us sustain and grow our school-aged programming and year-round activities,” said Lisa Lyon, The Relief Zone executive director. “What’s better than playing a friendly, spirited game of basketball while supporting a great cause. I want to extend my thanks to our fundraising committee and event volunteers who work tirelessly to host this day-long tournament as well as our community business partners and donors who make this tournament possible. We encourage spectators to join us for a fun-filled day of basketball.”
TRZ will hold its winter raffle during the tournament to benefit the non-profit organization. Two raffle prizes including a night stay compliments of Chautauqua Suites Hotel And Expo Center, and a mega gift basket valued at $250 will be the prize giveaways.
