First-ever Esko Alumni Charity Basketball Tournament brings in crowds

Posted: Updated:

The first-ever Esko Alumni Charity Basketball Tournament was held today at Esko High School gymnasium on Saturday.


The event raised money for the Best Christmas Ever, a non-profit 501-C-3 organization.


It also raised funds for the Esko Hoops Club, which supports youth basketball in Esko.


This event featured four of the top Esko Boys Basketball teams from the past- reunited in a tournament-style event. 


The event also had multiple teams competing in 20-minute games of 3-on-3 playing in the Esko fieldhouse.

"My favorite part is just getting back with the guys, you know a lot of us haven't really played in the last two to three months, we have been getting together, and it's really just seeing the community coming together," said Co-Founder Best Christmas Ever, Don Liimatainen.

Admission was free for students while adults are asked to make a $10 donation at the door.
