Two Counties, One Cause Tournament
Date: Saturday, January 12th
Location: Tappan Zee High School | 15 Dutch Hill Road | Orangeburg, NY
The boys high school basketball teams of Westchester County and Rockland County are coming together once again for a great cause!
Tappan Zee High School is set to host the third annual “Two Counties, One Cause” boys basketball tournament fundraiser on January 12th, 2019.
Last year, thanks to the communities of all six participating tournament teams, the Tappan Zee High School Boys Basketball team raised $14,000 for the Children's Tumor Foundation. This event raises awareness and money to fund critical research for neurofibromatosis (NF), which is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. It affects 1 in every 3,000 births; there is currently no cure.
Tappan Zee High School head basketball coach George Gaine is the driving force behind the charity tournament.
“The outpouring of support we have received, not only from our administration, but the participating schools, our team parents, current and former players and the community as a whole, has been awe-inspiring,” said Coach Gaine, now in his 16th year at the helm of Dutchmen basketball. “It is a cause near and dear to my heart, and I am truly humbled and forever grateful.”
