Basketball tourney a big success

April 1, 2014

The Community Healthy Activities Project of Bladen County, Men on a Mission, and Men and Women United for Youth and Families worked together to host a March Madness Basketball Tournament in the community of East Arcadia on March 22.

The event started at 9 a.m. at the East Arcadia Elementary School Gymnasium and the day consisted of a seven-team, double-elimination tournament set-up with a three-point shootout and slam dunk competition.

We were pleased to have a crowd of between 300 and 400, and we were able to raise about $1,500.

All proceeds from the event benefited recreational activities for the East Arcadia and surrounding communities.

Thank you,
