CEI AND YMCA TEAM UP FOR HOOP IT UP

 CEI AND YMCA TEAM UP FOR HOOP IT UP
 Thanks to the Cleveland Electric Illuminating company, sixty-four


Northeast Ohio youngsters will take to the court this weekend for the Hoop-It-Up Tournament.
 The 3-on-3 tourney tips off Aug. 14 at 8 a.m. and on Aug. 15 at 9 a.m. at the Nautica Entertainment Complex in the Flats. The event is free of charge.
 CEI is sponsoring 16 teams from YMCA branches throughout the Greater Cleveland area including: Ashtabula, Broadway, Central, Euclid, Glenville, Heights, Lakewood and West Park.
 "Not all of the YMCA teams could afford to go to this tournament, but it was made possible with CEI's sponsorship," said Dwight Brown, program director of the Broadway Branch of the YMCA. "We truly appreciated the company's generosity."
 Proceeds from Hoop-It-Up benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and The Plain Dealer Charities.
 "We believe this type of sponsorship provides opportunities to area youth that they might not ordinarily have available to them," said Tanzie Adams, manager of CEI Community Affairs.
 In total, 1,200 teams of four players each will compete. Teams are paired by computers according to age, height and skill level to ensure fair competition.
 Winners from the top men's and women's divisions will be flown to the National 3-on-3 Championship at Dallas in November. The event will be televised on NBC.
