Bronx Events: Basketball Tournament in St. James Park

This weekend is the 6th Annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic Tournament in St. James Park (West 192nd Street and Jerome Avenue). The tournament will take place from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13, and Sunday, Aug. 14.

The two-day tournament, run by The Gardiner Foundation, offers local Bronx residents the chance to watch some of the best street ballers from across the country compete for the title while enjoying free food, entertainment and giveaways. Also during the tournament, five lucky college-bound high school seniors will be awarded scholarships.

The Gardiner Foundation was established in 2006 by Dexter Gardiner, in memory of the loss of six of his family members in a horrific car accident on the Bronx River Parkway. His foundation has started a community outreach initiative that offers educational scholarships, financial support, emotional and spiritual guidance and burial assistance to other families in the community who have suffered a sudden and tragic loss.

The rain location for tournament is Gaucho’s Gym, 478 Gerard Ave. For more info go to www.LawyerTime.com.
