On April 7, 2018 LeagueApps will host the third annual Ballin' For Charity 3v3 basketball tournament at Basketball City in Manhattan. Not only does the event reinforce LeagueApps' mission to provide incredible sports experiences by ensuring that every dollar raised is donated to youth sports participants and mission-aligned organizations, but it also provides an incredibly fun and family-like atmosphere for all players.
Teams from the startup and tech communities will compete in either the competitive or recreational divisions with a chance to win a donation for the charity of their choice. Additionally, all players are eligible to enter the 3-point shootout and single-elimination knockout game that has become a staple of the day's events. At the end of pool play until the tournament concludes, the free after party in Basketball City's upstairs lounge will be open for all players with food and drinks provided.
The first two Ballin' For Charity tournaments saw more than 30 company teams compete each year, and in 2018 the field will expand to 54 eligible teams. Also for the first time LeagueApps will create a Kids Corner space, making the event more open and accessible to player families.
