I would like to thank everyone who supported our first ever 'Winter Holiday Youth 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament' at Pittsburgh Milliones in the Hill District this past Saturday, December 17, 2011! The event was a huge success, with our office drawing over 180 young people from across District 6 for a positive outing of fun and friendly camaraderie. Our office has progressively sought opportunities throughout District 6 to help grow our newly instituted 'Fit in Six' initiative. 'Fit in Six' is a new District 6 initiative that is solely focused on helping the constituency of District 6 become active citizens, live healthier lives and make healthier decisions towards positive personal growth.
I would like to personally acknowledge and thank the sponsors of our first tournament which include Point Park University, University of Pittsburgh, Hill Community Development Corporation, Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, A for the People Insurance Agency, Corporate Diversity Associates, and YouthPlaces, Inc. Our office would not have been successful in this effort without the help of our valued sponsors and community partners.
Our office will soon be planning our Spring/Summer tournament for 2012, if you know anyone that may be interested in participating or being a corporate sponsor, please contact Harry Johnson at 412-255-2134 for more information!
