Proceeds will be divided up and donated to different families in the area who are currently experiencing financial hardship.

The cost per team is $200 (6-12 players), and this is also a co-ed tournament, with each team required to have a female on the court at all times. As of this posting, eight teams have signed up.

DJ Poswah (Eric Laszewski, 28, Cornwall) has kindly agreed to spin tunes throughout the day.

Teams and individuals are also encouraged to book a campsite, stay the night, and support Charlottenburg Park.

The event logo was created by Colton’s older sister, Caitlyn Gallant, who also came up with the names.
