SCHROON LAKE — A benefit women’s basketball tournament will be played in Schroon Lake to assist Mountainside Christian Academy.
The tournament will be played at Mountainside, located on Route 9 in Schroon Lake, Saturday, Feb. 16, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Mountainside is a private, pre K-12 grade school now in its 36th year of operation.
“Former students and those with current ties to the school have come together from near and far to get this event launched,” said Nancy Ockrin, an organizer. “Volunteers have stepped up for everything from coaching, to baking and cooking, to refereeing, to concession stand work and helping with monies.”
Teams representing Lake Champlain Bible Fellowship from Port Henry, Crown Point Bible Church from Crown Point, Lakeside Regional Church from the Ti/ Hague area, Mountainside Bible Chapel from Schroon Lake and Grace Bible Fellowship from Olmstedville are slated to play.
Teams can register through Feb. 9. Additional information is available on Facebook at “"MCA Basketball Fundraiser.” Information is also available by Emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 597-3754.
“Relatives and spectators are encouraged to come out and cheer on their respective teams and towns,” Ockrin said.
Refreshments will be available for purchase throughout the day. A small admission fee will be charged for spectators.
