60 scholarships now possible
MVP Basketball Camp raised enough money this past Sunday at it’s annual Ping Pong Madness fundraiser to cover the tuition of sixty children for the upcoming summer basketball camp. In the process, a lot of fun was had whacking ping pong balls around the Westchester Table Tennis Center in Pleasantville, New York. Attendees of the event tested their skills in a tournament or just challenged a friend, and between games there was plenty of food, drink, and other entertainment for the whole family.

Oliver Gibbons of Bronxville won the open division tournament. Aaron DiChristina (right) beat his friend Logan Baumgartner (left) to take home the trophy in the 13 and under age group.
Magician Joe Fields entertained the young kids while the older ones gravitated to the TV to watch the Brooklyn Nets opening round playoff game. Silent auction tables attracted plenty of attention, thanks in large part to the memorabilia items offered up by our friends at Steiner Sports.
MVP also featured its newest camp video, which you can watch now on Vimeo.
