About The Producers.
For 15 years, Thomas Benjamin has planned and produced the basketball tournament but has always seen the need for more overall community involvement, something that people from all walks of life can look forward to. “I added the NBA component to event as a draw to event because the city needs this, the kids need it the kids need to see that with hard work and dedication they to can live out their dreams” says Mr. Benjamin.

We will be taken extra precaution of course to ensure everyone wearing mask and controlling social distancing. With everything going on today in the world our community needs to see “US” present within the community!
