This weekend some of the best basketball players in the state will gather in Great Falls for the biggest 3-on-3 tournament in Montana. 246 teams will compete in Spring Fling Hoop Thing this Saturday, June 4th.
Usually the money raised in this tournament benefits the Alliance for Youth organization, but this year they made a separate division that will help raise money for other charities.
"What we've done this year, is rather than having Spring Fling Hoop Thing, which has been solely a benefit for us," says Tournament Director Janet Thayer, "We've created the play for your cause division. We're pooling all the registration fees from that division and we're going to pay out to other organizations."
Registration is officially closed but spectators can still enjoy some of the vendors. Some of the vendors include Pizza Hut, Doughnut Brothers, Flying Cloud Coffee Co and Epic Sportswear.
