The Gardiner Foundation Events & Scholarship

BasketBall Classic TournamentOn August 18th and 19th, the Bronx community will host the 13th Annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic Tournament. This has turned into one of the most action-filled street basketball events on the East Coast. Through the game of basketball, the Gardiner family turned their tragedy of losing six family members in an accident on the Bronx River Parkway in 2006 into one of hope and triumph.

In Memory of the Gardiner Family

Getting injured in an accident can impact all aspects of your life. Imagine losing members of your family in a single car accident. That is pure devastation. This is the story of Dexter Gardiner, who lost six of his family members in an accident on the Bronx River Parkway on July 9, 2006.

What Is The Gardiner Foundation?

Scholarship Winnersweb

The Gardiner Foundation was established in 2006 by Dexter Gardiner in memoriam of six of his family members who lost their lives in a devastating car accident on the Bronx River Parkway. Dexter and the Foundation embarked on an outreach initiative to help others in his community struggling with a sudden and tragic loss. They offer a variety of support to community members experiencing various social and financial needs, ranging from financial support, college scholarships, computers, and school supplies to burial assistance and spiritual mentoring and guidance.

Dexter and Jeff S. Korek, partner at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., crossed paths in a summer basketball league in 2009. The firm has been a title sponsor of The Gardiner Foundation’s Basketball Tournament since 2010.

Jeff and their team made me feel comfortable and in great hands. I can't thank them enough and would highly recommend GLK to all. Thank you for all your help!read more

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
