The Story

EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2013

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Jun 01, 2013

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Jun 01, 2013

Patrick's PALS is a charity organization that was established in 1997; we raise money and awareness on behalf of those affected with Fragile X.  Fragile X is the most common inherited cause of mental impairment and the most common known cause of Autism.  All money raised go to FRAXA, a non-profit organization whose sole intent is to fund research to find a cure.

Patrick's PALS 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament is an annual event that occurs on the first Saturday in June.  The tournament is the foundation of our efforts to raise money and awareness.  We start with a mailing in February and build towards a 32-team double elimination tournament that is a special day for all involved.  Prior to this day donations pour in  via mail and the internet, and they come from far and wide.  This is largely due to a great group of friends and family that have come to the support of James & Pamela Vershbow.  Their son Patrick was diagnosed with Fragile X at 10 months; Patrick is now 20!
