Basketball Benefit Event

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) The Boys and Girls Club of Central Louisiana will be hosting a back to school bash basketball tournament tomorrow.

The five on five basketball tournament is a fundraiser to support after school programs at the Boys and Girls Club of CenLa.

Tournament organizers say the Boys and Girls club is key to keep children engaged in positive activities.

"I have always said that Boys and Girls clubs are very very vital to any community. And especially to the city of Alexandria, where there is not a lot for the kids to do. Baseball in the summer time, they have soccer in the winter time but there is not any programs year round. I think the boys and girls club can step up and do that for Central Louisiana," said Charles Smith.

Tip off for the tournament is tomorrow morning is set for 9 am.
