The 5th Annual Ballin’ For a Cause Charity Basketball Tournament is on its way for another exciting year on Saturday June 2nd - Sunday June 3rd 2012 at our brand new location the Buffalo Niagara Court Center. Looked as one of the most anticipated sporting events in the community, the tournament expanded in 2011 with a week full of special events and 2 days of tournament games. Ballin’ For a Cause is drawing attention from teams in Buffalo and Surrounding Areas, Niagara Falls, Rochester, Syracuse and New York City and even from other states such as New Jersey and Maryland. Entering into the 5th year of the existence, the tournament committee has announced it will raise this year’s grand prize to $5,000. Teams are not only competing for a cash prize and trophy but raising awareness and proceeds for local charities and non-profit youth organizations in the WNY area. Games start at 9am both days, with some of the area’s best players competing. The eventful tournament is matched with a week full of special events starting Tuesday May 29th and finishing up on Sunday the 3rd. The Annual “All Start Event” consisting of 3 point contest, slam dunk competition, local artist performance, and celebrity all-star game is one of great attraction. We would like to send an invitation for you to be a part of our weekend.

Ballin’ For a Cause is considered one of the most anticipated and sought after events in WNY. Found by local marketing and promotional company Crown Entertainment & Promotions. The tournament’s main focus is to bring awareness to local charities and non-profit organizations in WNY. Over the years the event has caught the attention of many politicians, star athletes, supporters and teams from various cities throughout New York State. In plans for the future, the tournament is planning to expand nationally with hosting a National Tournament here in Buffalo, NY.
