The Johnny Winston, Jr. 2005 Streetball and Block Party will be held on Saturday August 13th from 12 noon to 7:00 p.m. at Penn Park (South Madison – Corner of Fisher and Buick Street). Last year this event raised the funds necessary to keep the MMSD varsity reserve football and boys and girls basketball program operational.
“Streetball” is a full court, “5 on 5” Adult Men’s Basketball tournament featuring some of the best basketball players in the City of Madison, Milwaukee, Beloit, Rockford and other cities.
The “block party” activities for youth and families include: Music by the New Hot 105.9 FM; Free Bingo at 1 pm, 3 pm and 5 pm sponsored by DeJope Bingo; Face painting and youth activities sponsored by Madison School and Community Recreation, YMCA of Dane County and the Neighborhood Intervention Program; Singers, Dancers and Hip Hop performances by local talent. This event also includes information booths and vendors selling a variety of foods and other items.
This is a not-for-profit event. All proceeds are given directly to local charitable programs that benefit the community and support education.
In all, this event will provide a wonderful organized activity for everyone to enjoy this summer. If you have any questions or would like to discuss any further details, please feel free to call (608) 441-0224 or by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
