The Gardiner Foundation will be celebrating the 8th Annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic Tournament on Saturday August 17th and Sunday, August 18th from Noon to 8 pm at St. James Park in the Bronx. This year’s tournament promises to be bigger and more exciting than ever before. The law firm of Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. takes great pride in its affiliation with this foundation.
This two-day event receives local media coverage and has become one of the Bronx’s most anticipated summer attractions. The event schedule includes live entertainment, food, music and a memorial service where family members receive a memorial plaque in honor of a loved one that recently passed away.
In the past, the event has garnered some celebrity participants, with the legendary John Starks from the New York Knicks tossing up the opening tip-off, and NBA star Ben Gordon passing out laptops to the youth in attendance.
