Letter: Langley basketball tourney helped by many

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Brookswood Secondary senior girls basketball team, I want to thank Jason Winslade, Jared Harman, Marti Dumas and the rest of the crew at the Langley Events Centre for putting on an awesome tournament recently.

The Emily/Tsumara Basketball Invitational brought 16 of the best female basketball teams to Langley to participate in this unique experience.

All proceeds from this weekend are donated to BC Children’s Hospital. As tournament organizer Paul Langford likes to say, a tournament with a conscience. All teams bring an gift for a silent auction.

The Bobcats would like to thank Chaberton Winery and Backyard Vineyards for their generous donations to our wine basket.

All in all it was a great weekend where everyone went home a winner. Big shout out to all the Langley fans that came out and supported the Cats.

Looking forward to playing at the LEC again in March.

Neil Brown, Brookswood Secondary girls basketball
