For those interested: there's a basketball tournament supporting a good cause this weekend in the Bronx. The 13th annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic Tournament will be held Aug 18 & 19 at St. James Park. The free event features some of the top street basketball teams on the East Coast. It's run by The Gardiner Foundation, a nonprofit group that provides educational scholarships and financial and emotional support to families who have experienced an unexpected tragic loss. Bronx resident Dexter Gardiner created the foundation and tournament after six members of his family were killed in 2006 in a crash on the Bronx River Parkway. At the Tournament, the Gardiner Foundation will announce eight $1,000 scholarships to college-bound Bronx high school seniors and distribute 20 tablets and 750 backpacks filled with school supplies to the school-age children.
