Are you missing basketball?
Check out the ESPN 76 Classic Men’s Basketball Tournament at the Anaheim Convention Center over the Thanksgiving holiday, Nov. 24, 25, and 27. The 76 Classic is an 8 team college basketball tournament, which is broadcast and sponsored by ESPN. An added feature this year is a community outreach effort called “76 Classic Gives Back,” that will benefit local Orange County families in need this holiday season.
According to their website: “The 76 Classic is committed to supporting the surrounding communities through philanthropic programs and opportunities for area schools and charitable organizations. This year, the 76 Classic has identified Hunger Relief and Education as two areas in which the surrounding Orange County communities can benefit. In partnership with the City of Anaheim, the 76 Classic has designed philanthropic programs to support local charities, as well as elementary, junior high and high schools throughout Orange County to get involved.”
High school students gain free admission into one session, two games, by donating a non-perishable food item. The general public may also get half-price admission per session ($10) if they donate a can of food at the event. All donated food items will go to the Orange County Food Bank.
