WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES
The Unity Classic is an annual Pro-Am Basketball Tournament that is funded and produced by ACE through generous donations of our supporters. The goal of the tournament is to promote unity, provide resources and mentorship opportunities, while giving the community a fun safe summer activity that combats summer city violence.
THE UNITY CLASSIC
Many sports programs struggle to cover basic operating expenses because families cannot afford tuition. Your donations will provide funding for underserved and underfunded sports programs.
FUNDING FOR UNDERSERVED PROGRAMS
After-school physical activity (e.g., basketball, football, volleyball, martial arts) carried out five times a week, significantly reduced anger, hostile thoughts, physical aggression, and negative emotions in children (Shachar et al., 2016) ACE has attached a customized sports program to a proven youth reform program for at risk youth. This model aims to combat violence in the city.
VIOLENCE PREVENTION PROGRAM
Many high school sports programs do not have access to healthy, balanced meals needed to perform thier best in games. Through generous donations we are able to provide athletes with healthy, balanced meals, snacks and protein supplements.
