The 36th annual Basketball Spectacular, sponsored by the Hamilton Co. Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs, is taking place March 19 at Noblesville High School.
Each year, the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville hosts the daylong event, which is the culmination of months of preparation and practices by the participants. More than 500 participated this year in the basketball program at the club, and the Basketball Spectacular is the day for them to display their skills and compete for the title of tournament champs.
“The Spectacular is such a great event for all the kids, parents and coaches involved. It is the conclusion of our season and gives us the chance to make all the kids feel special during both our awards ceremony and championship games,” said Tony Eslamirad, sports director for the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville. “It also gives the kids the opportunity to play on the Noblesville High School floor, which is where a lot of the kids aspire to be playing one day.”
Throughout the day, teen members of the Boys & Girls Club who participate in the VOICE program, a teen-lead advocacy group against all drugs, will provide important information to attendees. This year’s focus will be on prescription drugs and heroin use with the theme “Be a Hero.” Attendees will be asked to take a pledge that day to be a hero against drug use.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for individuals and companies. For more, please contact Eslamirad at 773.4372 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
