Destiny Barnes and five of her classmates at Nature Coast Technical High School are organizing a project for their English 2 Class, with the goal of bettering society.

Barnes describes the project, “My group and I are holding a basketball tournament at the Nature Coast Technical High School gym on May 18th from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. There will be 8 teams of 5-8 players and they will compete in a scrimmage type tournament. There can be coed teams and anyone under the age of 21 can join. We will have a $5 fee for those who want to watch and a $8 fee for those who want to play. We plan to sell concession, as well. All of the money we raise will be donated to the Challenged Athletes Foundation, which provides an opportunity to those with physical challenges to live a healthy lifestyle.”

The students are looking for business sponsors for the tournament supplies such as food for the concession and t-shirts.   

Barnes explains, “Our main goal is to raise at least $1000 for the Challenged Athletes Foundation. We would be extremely grateful for any kind of donation. If a company donates $100 or less, we will place their logo on all of our flyers. If you donate $200 we will put their logo on both the flyers and the t-shirts. If they donate $400 or more, we will put their logo on both the t-shirts and flyers, and we will also give them a shout out during the game.”  

So mark your calendars for the Dunking with a Purpose Event and contact Destiny Barnes for additional information about becoming a sponsor.
