Is your 3 on 3 hoops team as good as you think? Gather your finest players and test your skills against some of the best teams on Long Island while raising funds for children with cancer at the Jay’s World Childhood Cancer Foundation’s 15th Annual Top Gun Basketball Tournament, Sunday, Sept. 13, in the gymnasium at North Shore High School in Glen Head.
This highly anticipated annual competition, which benefits the Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) at Winthrop-University Hospital, is open to boys and girls, men and women ages 8 to 60+. All teams will play a minimum of four 15-minute games; winners will compete in the playoffs. Trophies are awarded for first and second place in each bracket and all participants will receive a Jay’s World Childhood Cancer Foundation T-shirt.
The cost to register a four-player team is $150. All of the proceeds from this event will directly support children with cancer and their families.
The Jay’s World Childhood Cancer Foundation Inc. was founded by MaryAnn and Ralph Napolitano shortly after their 13-year-old son Jason “Jay,” now 30, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Jason and the entire Napolitano family have been ardent supporters of Winthrop and are committed to raising funds to support children with cancer and their families.
