A youth basketball tournament is being held this week in Greenville. Proceeds go to the St. Lawrence Catholic Church and Greenville College men’s basketball mission programs.
Randy Alderman told us up to 32 teams from around southern Illinois will be involved in the seventh annual tournament. The teams will be made up of boys and girls in 5th and 6th grade.
Alderman told us St. Lawrence Catholic Church will use its portion of the proceeds for their upcoming mission trip to Montana, where they will be working on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation.
Admission to the event is $3.
