Think you can play with the pros? Then register a team and join in the fun at the inaugural Tournament of Stars, an exciting two-day basketball event in support of the life-changing work done every day at West Park Healthcare Centre.
Tournament of Stars will team NBA alumni, celebrities and other Canadian athletes with hoop-loving West Park supporters for some hard-court action.
The event kicks off on Friday, March 31, 2017 with a Celebrity Draft Party, a fun and exciting cocktail reception during which teams will draft their celebrity players. To qualify for the tournament, teams must raise a minimum of $25,000 for a 5 on 5 team and $10,000 for a 3 on 3 team. However, draft order is based on total team fundraising, so the team that raises the most funds receives first choice for their celebrity teammate.
On Saturday at Ryerson University teams will take to the court to battle for the ultimate bragging rights – Tournament of Stars Champions! The tournament includes two divisions (3 on 3 and 5 on 5), an All-Star Game between the celebrities and the top fundraisers and a 3-point competition – providing plenty of entertainment throughout the day.
The Tournament of Stars will be a family-friendly, fun-filled day of basketball with great food, beer “tents” (ages 19 and over) and lounge areas for teams to socialize with the celebrities, including photo and autograph opportunities.
Not an experienced basketball player? Don’t worry, the name of the game is to have fun while raising funds and awareness in support of West Park.
