Matt Shaw Memorial Basketball Tournament

Hello everyone, 

This year will be the 2nd year anniversary of Matt Shaw's passing and his family and friends wanted to start an annual basketball tournament in his honor. Basketball was his favorite sport and he was great at it. We plan on having it during his birthday weekend starting next Saturday the 26th. 

The funds collected will go towards custom tee shirts for the 4 teams, trophies, refs, court permits, DJ, food and drinks to serve to everyone who attends, misc costs and anything else we raise will go towards The Matt Shaw Fund at LeMoyne College his alma mater.

We would like this to become beneficial to children in our community and bring awareness to gun violence, help children with the rising costs of college and giving children a chance to do more with their lives. We appreciate all donations of all sizes.
