 The annual three-day charity basketball tournament will take place April 2 – 4 at the University of Toronto Athletic Centre and Ryerson University. Around 800 men and women from Toronto’s corporate ranks will compete in a full-court round robin tournament. Special events include a children’s basketball clinic (1:30 p.m.) and a three-point shoot out (1:00 p.m.) on April 4 at U of T and a post-game party for everyone involved at the Steam Whistle Brewery.

The 15-year-old event has raised a cumulative $1.6 million since its inception. This year’s fundraising goal is $200,000, with the funds going to Special Olympics Ontario, Daytrippers Children’s Charity, and the Bay Street Hoops Youth Basketball Initiative.
