Dear SoCal Friends and All the Lovers of the Basketball Game,

In less than 10 days Veterans and First Responders of our nation will come together to play in the Inaugural DK3 Venice Beach Veterans Championship on the iconic courts of Venice Beach in 3x3 wheelchair basketball. Come out and experience the "Soul of the Game" with me on October 12-13th, 2019. This event is held to honor our nation's veterans and first responders on the 70th anniversary of the birth of wheelchair basketball in Long Beach VA. By bringing competitive 3x3 wheelchair basketball to the iconic basketball courts of Venice Beach, we are taking the game back to its roots.

So, I invite you to become a part of this historic moment in Venice Beach in October with us. Help us fill the stands with energy, joy, and passion on October 12-13th. Bring your family members, kids, friends, and even your pets to watch the competition. You'll be inspired by the athleticism, competition, and camaradarie you'll be witnessing. We'll have a DJ who'll be playing music all day.

3x3 wheelchair basketball is a candidate sport for the Paralympic Games and its potential inclusion in the LA2028 is in talks. DK3's commitment to the growth and inclusion of the sport is inevitable. Growing a fanbase for the sport is key to our success.

I cannot be more excited to welcome YOU to the first and only outdoor 3x3 wheelchair basketball championship for our veterans and first responders in the United States.

Please RSVP today and share link with your friends and family. We also accept any donation to help us run the show in the best way possible. We appreciate any support you could provide.

If you have a desire to volunteer and help out during the tournament, please email isiltanyeri@gmail.com.

Peace,

DK
Founder of DK3
