The fourth annual Jim Green Memorial Basketball Tournament is hitting the courts at the Woodward’s Building on Saturday, August 27.
The event memorializes Jim Green – a long shoreman, cab driver, community activist, non-profit housing politician, university instructor, and a regular at the Charles Bar. Joining in on the basketball tournament helps raise money for the DTES via the Jim Green Foundation.
The event is an indoor/outdoor, three-on-three basketball tournament that takes place in the Woodward’s atrium and courtyard each summer. Teams compete in an action packed tournament with the goal to not only win, but to raise as much money as possible.
