The 10th Annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic: Another Year of Fun, Action and Support In the Bronx Community

50070331webWow what a weekend. I am so pleased and incredibly proud to report that last weekend’s Gardiner Foundation Memorial Classic was a great success.

Our mission of helping keep kids off the streets through basketball was covered by the NY Post, WFAN, NY1, The Village Voice, Bronx News 12, Slam Magazine and others. I am so grateful for your contribution, and I wanted to write to thank you. We simply could not have done it without you.

To those who so generously contributed I cannot thank you enough.

For those who would like to contribute, it is not too late. If you are so inclined please write a check payable to Gardiner Foundation c/o Gersowitz Libo & Korek, 111 Broadway, New York, NY 10006. No amount is too small.

Tournament Recap:

Second Game ActionwebWith sponsorship from Lawyertime.com and generous contributions from Steiner Sports, Kyrie Irving, The New York Knicks, The Brooklyn Nets, and private donors, the Gardiner Foundation was able to give away five college scholarships to high school seniors, over 450 backpacks filled with school supplies, and 20 Samsung tablets to local students. Other items generously gifted to the community included autographed memorabilia by Mariano Rivera and Chris Paul courtesy of Steiner Sports and 23 pairs of sneakers and t-shirts donated by NBA pro Kyrie Irving.Good Press Helps Spread the Word

This tournament is more than just basketball. It is utilized as a tool to bring the community together to further the goals of the Gardiner Foundation. This tournament has continued to grow over the past 10 years and with the help of all the press it has received, the Memorial Basketball Classic is on its way to becoming the premier non-profit basketball tournament in New York City. Some published coverage of the event included:

Please Help Support Our Bronx Community

If you haven’t yet, it is still not too late to donate to The Gardiner Foundation, as we operate year-round. Yes , we take great pride in running what will soon be regarded as the top street ball tournament in the City, but we are equally proud of our “Saturday Before Thanksgiving” turkey give away where once again we plan to distribute at our beloved St. James Park over 500 turkeys to families in need.

In addition, we will continue to run throughout the year our Tru-Talk program where we mentor local teenagers who face everyday challenges including gangs, violence, guns, unwanted pregnancy, and a host of other issues in ‘the hood”.

Checks can be made payable to The Gardiner Foundation, c/o Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., 111 Broadway, 12th Floor, New York, New York 10006. The Gardiner Foundation is a New York State approved tax exempt 501(c)(3).

Again, thank you for all of your support.

Sincerely,

Jeff S. Korek

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
