THE FINAL PLAY CHARITY GAMES
It's More Than Just A Game. It's A Mission To Make An Impact!
We’re talking about an 8-team five-on-five basketball tournament with a 3-Point Contest, Skills Challenge, and Slam Dunk Contest. The Charity Games support local non-profit organizations and community initiatives in Benton Harbor, Michigan through small grants. Each charity selects one of the teams they wish to represent and compete for them.
If your team wins, the charity you're playing for receives a $2,500 Community Impact grant.
The second-place team wins $1,500 for their charity.
The third-place team wins $1000 for their charity.
The fourth-place team wins $500 for their charity, respectively.
And The Winning Team Will Take Home $1,000 For Themselves!
We call that a win-win.
