Play for Prevention Basketball Tournament
March 31, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm$5.00
This is a single elimination tournament with seven teams competing for the title. The teams are made of youth from local schools, community members, teachers, school deputies, and local law enforcement. This event was designed to bring together youth, law enforcement and the community for the purpose of focusing on substance abuse prevention in this area.
As we enter 2019, the prevalence of substance abuse and addiction continues to rise which is creating a public health crisis in our area. This area is fortunate that we have many resources for substance abuse prevention and addiction services that are available to all members of the community. This year’s tournament will benefit two local non-profits that have done outstanding work in this area to identify and develop effective resources and provide programs both faith based and non-faith based. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Northern Shenandoah Valley Substance Abuse Coalition (NSVSAC) and Grace Downtown of Winchester (GDOW).
We will have some tables set up with information to share about prevention and available resources in this area. Please come on out and support this great cause!
