Event Details

Memphis, Tennessee: On June 21, 2014 community leaders including Memphis politicians, police officers and pastors are coming together to celebrate the value of education and raise funds to help college freshmen start strong. Mayor A.C. Wharton will lead the tip off as Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong coaches the police officers in a friendly basketball competition with several prominent local pastors. This game will serve as a springboard to rally behind inner city students and catapult them toward success. 

While preparing for the Clergy Police Academy graduation at Golden Gate Cathedral this spring, Director Armstrong spoke of this game and invited the community to share in this life-changing effort by saying: 

“Come out and make a difference in our community as the Police Department shows these pastors why they call us Memphis Finest. I know the Lord is on their side but we’re praying too, so I’ll see you at the shootout!” 

This event is born out of the fact that 200,000 adults in Memphis have received some college education, but were unable to see their education through. Funds for Freshmen believes that a strong start can pave the way for a successful finish. 

The game will begin at 10 a.m. on June 21st at the Neighborhood Christian Center (785 Jackson Avenue, Memphis, TN 38107). Special thanks to our sponsors, admission is free and all donations go toward stipends for college freshmen.
