Each year in Auburn, Washington, the Emerald Downs 3-on-3 (EmD3-on-3) basketball tournament is a great fundraising event for local charities. This year, Doxon Toyota was a proud sponsor of the 2014 EmD3-on-3 competition with proceeds from the event going towards the Auburn Valley YMCA.
EmD3-on-3 Tournament Director Bob Fraser said in a statement, “We are honored to partner with Auburn-area organizations on many levels. The YMCA was again chosen as the tournament beneficiary because of their work dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We raised over $22,000 in 2013 and hope to exceed that number this year.”
All the basketball action happened this past weekend on August 9 and 10. Over 200 teams and 1,000 players competed to be crowned the Emd3-on-3 champions. Players were divided into brackets based on age and skill level and each team was able to play at least three games.
