On Saturday, TBD, from 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm at the Trevor Day School (312 East 95th Street), I am hosting the Third Annual ‘Tobey’s Tournament’; a charity dedicated to helping children in need.
I created ‘Tobey’s Tournament’ to formalize my commitment to children by partnering with the Garden of Dreams Foundation. This foundation is a non-profit organization that works with The Madison Square Garden Company and MSG Networks, Inc. The organization positively impacts the lives of children facing obstacles such as homelessness, extreme poverty, illness, and foster care.
For my first tournament, I was awarded the Sweetwater Clifton Award at Madison Square Garden during halftime of a Knicks’ game last year. This award granted me $5,000, which I pledged back to the Garden of Dreams Foundation. The grand total I raised from the 1st tournament was $13,500. Last year (my second tournament), I raised over $17,000. My hope this year is to raise even more than both of those past tournaments.
With your help, I believe I can.
No amount is too big or too small. Even $25 would mean so much to me in my effort to raise money for the Garden of Dreams Foundation.
Alternatively, you can write a check to Tobey’s Helping Hand.
Thank you in advance for your support.
I hope you and your family are doing well during this chaotic time.
I just wanted to give you a quick update on this year’s tournament. At this point, I am unsure if I will be able to have the event, but I am still hoping for one this May or June. It will all depend if it is safe enough to have the tournament, and because it is still a few months away, I can’t tell you as of now if it will be.
I will make sure to update all of you on the status of the tournament when I have a better understanding.
All the best,
I hope you and yours are well and safe.
With COVID-19 still prevalent throughout society, unfortunately having a basketball tournament this fall is not an option. I wanted to remind you that all the donations from the canceled tournament are being held in a bank account. If you would like your donation returned, I would be more than happy to do so. If so, please email me separately and we can figure out the easiest way to return your donation.
I do plan on having a final tournament in May or June. If we do have the tournament, the donations that are not returned will be given to the Garden of Dreams Foundation after the completion of the tournament.
I will keep providing updates when new information arises regarding the final tournament.
All the best,
I hope you all are doing well and are staying safe. As you know, the decision regarding schools re-opening will be made in the next few weeks. Once that decision is made, I will have more clarity on this year's tournament in October or November.
If we are unable to have this year's tournament, I do plan on having my final tournament in May or June of this year. If last year's tournament cannot be rescheduled, you have the option of having your donation returned to you, or rolling the donation to the tournament in May or June.
Either way, I just want you to know how much I appreciate all of your support for my tournaments, and the children of New York City through the Garden of Dreams Foundation.
All the best,
Because of Covid-19, we have decided to push back the date of our tournament. We don’t know an exact date for the tournament as of right now, but the tournament will most likely occur in the fall.
