The tournament raised over $4,000 to help fund scholarships for individuals with disabilities so they can purchase adaptive equipment.

This is the second year that L&C employees have participated in the tournament, which is a great opportunity for basketball players of all ability levels to test their skills from a wheelchair. You do not have to have a disability to play, wheelchairs are provided.​
