Proceeds from "Who's Got Next" will benefit two important causes. Funds will help defray the enormous medical costs incurred by the family of Ella Joy Sun Young May May Won. Ella Joy is a 4-year-old girl from Chicago who is fighting for her life against stage 4 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cancer. Money raised will also enable Midwest Sports Academy to support more underprivileged children and youth through its educational services and athletic programs.

"Who's Got Next" is a family-oriented festival of basketball, sportsmanship and fun for all ages, celebrating the tradition of halfcourt pick-up basketball games. The tournament will feature a variety of divisions grouped by age, gender and skill level, ranging from youth boys and girls divisions to a senior men's division. Trophies will be awarded for the winning teams in each division. The tournament will employ a pool-play format, and every team is guaranteed three games, win or lose. Friday's festivities include free-throw and three-point shooting competitions as well as a dunk contest.

Signups have begun. The registration fee is $136 for teams of three or four players and is due by July 12. Teams can register online at www.msasportsprograms.org/payments.html and learn more details about the tournament at www.msasportsprograms.org/3on3Tournaments.

Midwest Sports Academy is a non-profit organization helping disadvantaged children and youth develop core values, college readiness and athletic skills through educational and sports programs. The academy serves young people throughout the northwest and western suburbs as well as DeKalb County and the Rockford area.
