Organization for the 4th Annual Franklin Youth Basketball Jimmy Fund 3 on 3 Tournament is underaway. As
noted, most of the website has been built and the registration process outlined. (The registration form can be printed out
Last year we had over 180 3-8th Grade Boys & Girls participate as well as over 60 HS Volunteers for the event. In the
process we raised over $3K for the Jimmy Fund/Dana Farber bringing our 3-year total in excess of $8K. (See Accounting Pages
You'll notice some tweaks for this year including the addition of a 1/2B & 1/2G Division.
You'll also notice on the Accounting 4th Annual page our expense to lease gymtime from the Franklin School Dept has increased
from $880 to $1530 this year. (A new pay structure for leasing gymtime was implemented this past September which has
impacted Town Rec, CYO and Metro as well.) Hence, the registration fee has been increased for all 3-8th Grade
Boys and Girls from $20 to $25 to cover this and not impact our Jimmy Fund Donation. (1/2B & 1/2G will be $15)
To help broadcast this tournament, please forward along an e-mail or verbal word to any neighbors, friends of your kids,
etc. If your son or daughter plans to participate, I'd request you forward along the registration as your earliest convenience.
(i.e. the $1530 gym fee has been paid to reserve the court time at Sullivan, Horace Mann & Oak St)
I and a number of other parents once again look forward to working with a group of High School Student Volunteers
to organize this year's event. Hope your son or daughter can attend!
Please do not hesitate to drop me an e-mail if you have any questions.
