Just a quick word of thanks to all the parents, coaches, referees and players who made our 26th Annual (can you believe it) Turkey Shootout basketball tournament a great success.
Christ the King hosted 13 parishes for a week of great basketball and community giving. In all, the program collected and donated a few hundred pounds of food for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
I know we may miss some folks, but here is a list of the volunteers who contributed their time to make such a great event: Steve Murphy, Brad Slininger, Randy Ridgway, Kathy Ridgway, Pat Ertola, Vince Cirelli, Doug Senz, Jame Baird, Gus Jullien and Thom Martin. In addition, it was great to see the number of CTK CYO players stick around to help. And it was delightful to have some dedicated alumni return, as well as former athletic director, Rick Ramacier, try his hand at the scoring table.
Now, on to the Christmas Classic event featuring our girls 7th Grade American and 8th Grade National teams, December 19 – 22 at the CTK Gym. As always, our fantastic tournaments director Steve Murphy will lead us through the effort.
