Hope For Hart Tourney kicks off this weekend

Tribune Staff Reports

If you think you’ve got game, grab two of your friends and head to South Tahoe High School’s Blue & Gold Gyms this weekend for some 3-on-3 basketball madness!

The first-ever Hope For Hart 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament will take place to benefit Chase and Tanner Hart, whose father has a rare form of cancer.

As of Thursday night, tournament organizers had registered 37 teams for the charity event and hope to have 50 by tip-off Saturday.

Late entrants may register before 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning at South Tahoe High School or all day Friday at Rude Brothers Bagel & Coffee Haus on Harrison Avenue.

The event includes five divisions: Men’s Open, Women’s, 6-foot and under, 30 and over and Under-18, with over $6,000 in prize money, including a possible $2,000 payoff for the Men’s Open champion.

A one-time fee of $37.50 covers the double-elimination tournament and

includes a T-shirt and an invitation to an apres-hoops party at Mulligans

Irish Pub, where over $1,000 in raffle prizes will be auctioned.

Action will begin Saturday at 9:30 a.m. in South Tahoe’s Blue and Gold gyms, and the post party at Mulligans will follow at 7 p.m that evening. Finals will take place Sunday, with game times to be announced.

The Deck & Cafe, a South Shore restaurant, will host charity breakfasts Saturday and Sunday morning, with all proceeds going to the Hart’s trust fund.
