FARMINGTON – Franklin Community Health Network’s third annual Champions for Health Care
Basketball Tournament takes place on April 3-5 at UMF’s Dearborn Gymnasium. Seven teams, organized by Ranor, Inc., will participate in the round robin tournament. All proceeds go towards Evergreen Behavioral Service’s new Child Development Center.
Evergreen’s Child Development Center provides therapeutic evaluation and treatment for children and adolescents with developmental disorders including autism, Asperger’s Disorder, ADHD, and other developmental and behavioral problems. The center opened in December 2008, and is one of only
three such centers in Maine. Over 160 children and their families have already made their way through the doors of the center.
This year’s tournament will consist of two pools of teams, including several well-known teams. The top two teams from each pool will advance to the championship game being held on Sunday, April 5.
According to Aaron St. Pierre, chair of the event, “There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities for area businesses including championship sponsor, gold and silver sponsors, social gathering sponsor, and scoreboard sponsor.”
Benefits of sponsorship vary among levels, but may include: VIP seating for the tournament games, signage at the reception and awards ceremony, and company name and logo displayed at the tournament game sponsored.
“We are encouraging businesses to sponsor at the highest level, but hope they can become a gold or silver sponsor, so their company name and logo can be placed on signage at the games,” added St. Pierre.
Don’t miss out on being part of the fun at this exciting event attended by so many in our community and benefiting so many as well.
