Basketball game to benefit program that helps fathers
Tue, 05 Mar 2013 03:26:27 GMT —
Man To Man Fatherhood Initiative and the Upsilon Sigma Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority are hosting a charity basketball game.
The game will feature the world famous Harlem Rockets and the Bennettsville All-Stars.
All money raised will help the Man To Man program.
The Harlem Rockets have traveled across the country with their high-flying tricks on the court and they've played more than 2,500 games in 16 years without losing.
The Bennettsville All-Stars features several members of the community including former Marlboro County High School basketball standouts Tymere Zimmerman and Casaan Breeden. Zimmerman won WPDE's Zoneman Trophy, given to the outstanding high school football player in the Pee Dee and Grand Strand in 2000. Breeden played college basketball at Florida State and the College of Charleston and won WPDE's Mister Hoop Zone Trophy in 2005.
The team hopes to hand the Rockets its first loss.
