On behalf of the Clemons Classic Memorial Basketball Tournament Committee, we would like to sincerely thank everyone for coming out to support the Fourth Annual Memorial Basketball Tournament. Unlike many "not-for- profit" tournaments here in Kansas City, this one is special because it is a celebration of the life and legacy of Amir and Gerard Clemons. It is also a great opportunity for local youth an community members to come together in support of the "Clemons Closet'.
The Clemons Closet provides shoes, undergarments and personal hygiene items for students in need, attending Blue Ridge Elementary in Raytown, MO, the school that Amir and Gerard attended. As a result of your support, $1,000 will be used towards the purchase of new items for the closet for the 2013-2014 school year.
Each year it is our goal to encourage new supporters, recruit additional teams and maintain the relationships we have with the teams that have supported us in years prior. We can continue to increase our impact in the community with your continued support. We realize that there are numerous tournaments all over the city that you could choose to participate in so it means the world to us that you reserve one weekend each year in memory of Amir and Gerard Clemons and we appreciate your dedication. We hope to see you next year in April for the 2014 Clemons Classic Memorial Basketball Tournament!
Gerard & Rasheedah Clemons
