See 3 Slam Tournament gives back to the blind in Africa
RICHLAND, Wash. -- John Dam Plaza is getting ready for its own local hoop fest.
Tri-City Sunrise Rotary and the City of Richland are teaming up for their second See 3 Slam this Friday through Sunday. It kicks off tomorrow with the MBA3 Youth Academy and then a wheelchair basketball exhibition game put on by the Para sport team out of Spokane.
Local teams will be competing in a three-on-three basketball tournament Saturday and Sunday. It's never too late to sign up for the shootout contest, where you’ll have the opportunity to win a Ford Fiesta. There will be plenty of food vendors, entertainment and fun for the entire family.
"George Washington Way will now be street ball, nothing but street ball,” said Executive Director Terry Fleischman. “We have 240 teams registered to play. We're a mini hoop fest!."
The tournament gives the gift of sight back to the blind in Africa by providing cataract surgeries.
