3rd Annual Let It Fly Classic

THIRD TIME IS ALWAYS A CHARM

On behalf of The Let It Fly Classic in conjunction with Chelsea Black Community (CBC), we present the Third Annual Let It Fly Classic Basketball Tournament & Schorlaship

Welcome Back! Our names are Kyle Umemba and Cesar Castro. We are lifelong residents of Chelsea, who are also actively involved with the youth of Chelsea and are dedicated to inspiring them to go to college. We have witnessed many positive changes within our city, yet, continue to notice the constant setbacks  still plaguing  the youth of our community.

Two years ago we made a decision to  implement change! That decision developed into a collective effort to invest in our youth and break the cycle of watching kids fell by the waist side.

Our answer, The Let It Fly Classic . A ONE DAY BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT  WHERE ALL PROCEEDS ARE GIVEN TOWARDS SCHOLARSHIPS FOR LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.

During this event, there will be:

Food and Drinks
Live Entertainment and DJ
Voter Registration
Meet Local Officials, and Local Businesses

We are looking for your support and donation in order to ensure that the tournament and its purpose will be successful.

These past few years have been a true testament to what could happen when a community focuses its energy and unites for a great cause. Our goal remains the same, as members of this great and budding community, I believe you will be excited about an opportunity to encourage educational growth amongst our most precious citizens. Individuals that someday will be leaders within our community.

Any donation will be greatly appreciated. As many scholarships will be awarded as donations to the scholarship fund will allow. The first year we were able to award three scholarships to the following graduates: Marianna Kamara, Katherine Cabral and Jonathan Gomez-Pereira .The second year we were able to award five scholarships. This year the sky is truly the limit.
