The 14th Annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic Tournament

14th Annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic TournamentOn August 17th and 18th, the Bronx community will be hosting the 14th Annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic Tournament, the most action-filled street basketball on the East Coast. The Gardiner family turned tragedy into hope and triumph through the game of basketball after losing six family members in a crash on the Bronx River Parkway in 2006. The Gardiners established The Gardiner Foundation to turn the goal into reality.

The Gardiner Foundation, a nonprofit organization, builds upon the Gardiner’s family legacy of helping others in need and involvement in the game of basketball by providing educational scholarships, financial and emotional support, and burial assistance to other families who have experienced an unexpected tragic loss. The Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic Tournament has been held every summer for the past 13 years in the Bronx. This summer, the teams will include not only those from the Bronx and other local communities, but also teams from Mississippi and New Jersey.

14 Years of Providing Hope to Others

This two-day event attracts local media coverage and is one of the Bronx’s most anticipated summer attractions. The Gardiner Foundation has reached its goals of assisting others in similar tragic situations with the help of many donors. To date, The Gardiner Foundation has handed out 51 scholarships and is adding to this number at this year’s event. The scholarship recipients will use the money to pay for their academic future.

The Foundation will be distributing 700 backpacks to school age children that will include pencils, notebooks, sharpeners and other school supplies. They will also raffle off educational devices, including 24 tablets and 2 iPods.
