Welcome to the 2011 Zebra Classic, presented by Anaren, Inc. Under the co-sponsorship of Central New York Board #38 of the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials (IAABO), the Classic is celebrating its 25th year of bringing together the top high school basketball talent in Section III, both male and female, to compete in our dual-purpose event. In addition to showcasing the area's top talent, the Tournament's main goal is raising funds for scholarships and special youth programs in the Central New York area. Past beneficiaries of the Zebra Classic include Camp Good Days and Special Times, the Dorothy Day House, Francis House, Hospice of Central New York, the Bishop Foery Foundation and the Catholic Youth Organization.
We are very pleased to announce that Anaren, Inc. will be the underwriting sponsor of the Zebra Classic through the 2011 Tournament. Through their sponsorship, the Zebra Classic is able to continue the tradition of providing Central New York high school hoops fans with the premier event of its type in Upstate New York, as well as continuing our history of giving to our worthy charities. Our donation total now exceeds $100,000 over the life of the Tournament, and we hope to grow that number significantly with the 2011 Tournament.
