SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES OPEN
 
We are happy to once again host the 47th Annual Thanksgiving basketball tournament known as The Brother Ralph Edmiston Classic. This week-long tournament brings together schools in the spirit of friendship to challenge each other for the championship title. Brother Ralph served as SEA’s athletic director for 15 years. He had a passion for all sports and received accolades on the court and in the classroom. But Brother Ralph’s crowning achievement was the example that he set for others. He led by example. We are proud to host this tournament in his name each year. We hope that you will join us as a sponsor by placing an ad in the event program book. The tournament begins on Friday, 11/25 with the championship game held on Saturday, 12/3. Proceeds from the tournament including program book ads, benefit our boys.
