It's a basketball tournament that honors the memory of a child and raises money for the underprivileged children in our community. It's the 6th annual Mase Madness basketball tournament and runs August 11th-13th.

Mason Pierre McKan was born on July 13th, 2011. He was only here for a little over 6 months (January 26th, 2012), but his life has inspired many. Read Mase's story here.

The tournament is at the Johnson City Middle School Gyms. See the complete schedule here. The tournament raises money for the Mason P. McKan Benevolence Fund.

The Benevolence Fund supports worthy local community programs by providing support to those individuals and families in our local area who have also faced tragedies and misfortune in their lives.

Funds raised will help support the community’s youth by providing scholarships to deserving student athletes and to help them pursue their dreams of athletic and personal success.

I'll be doing my part and will be officiating on Friday and Saturday. I hope to see you there. If you'd like to support the fund or want to find out more about the tournament, go here.
