On August 16th and 17th, the Gardiner Foundation will be celebrating the 9th Annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic Tournament. The event will be held in the Bronx from Noon to 8 pm. There will be free food, beverages and endless music for all spectators. This event, which is held every year at St. James Park, is proudly sponsored by the law firm of Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. (Lawyertime.com).
This two-day event attracts local media coverage and is one of the Bronx’s most anticipated summer attractions. Celebrities and guest speakers are scheduled to make appearances on both days of the event.
There will be eight teams competing in an eliminating-format throughout the two days, as well as two youth all-star teams competing on that Sunday. In addition to the games, the event schedule includes entertainment for the spectators and a memorial service providing family members with a memorial plaque in honor of a loved one who recently passed away.
About The Gardiner Foundation, Inc.

The Foundation recognizes the need for families in similar situations in the community by providing educational scholarships, financial and emotional support, and burial assistance to other families who have experienced an unexpected tragic loss.
Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. has been a title sponsor of this annual event since 2009. The money and manpower we donate each year provides various needs supported by The Gardiner Foundation.
