Student societies sponsor basketball tournament to benefit Cooley Cares

The Cooley Muslim Legal Society along with the Sports and Entertainment Law Society are giving back to the community by organizing a charity basketball tournament. Hype Athletics will also be co-sponsoring the event. All proceeds go to Cooley Cares Charity. Cooley Cares provides Thanksgiving dinners to less fortunate families. The goal of this event is to bring communities from Wayne county and Oakland county together through a fun day of fundraising for charity.

The event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 22, from 2 to 8 p.m. at Avondale Middle School, 1445 West Auburn Road in Rochester Hills. Tickets will be $5 for spectators. In order to participate in a three-on-three format, participants are requested to donate $30. Cooley Law students as well as members of the public are encouraged to play. Teams can sign up in advance an hour before the event begins. Prizes will be raffled off throughout the day and there will be a 3 point contest held during the tournament.

Former NBA player and "Fab 5" player, Jimmy King, will be the MC for the event.
