The last month of summer vacation started with an exciting weekend long basketball tournament sponsored by Senator Corey McCray in partnership with Leader Breeders. Six teams of all different skill sets were invited to compete over the course of two days. 

The event took place under the world famous “Dome” in East Baltimore during the Peace Promise weekend, promoted by the Baltimore Peace Movement (formerly known as Ceasefire). The Towson University Lady Tigers were on hand to pump up and encourage the young ladies on the court. 

The second day of the event kicked off with more awesome action and truly talented skilled players doing what they loved. The tradition of basketball in Baltimore is strong and thriving and the ladies are coming to make their presence known. In addition to the athletic talent, the programming also included performances by Baltimore’s own Be You Ent.
