The nonprofit Assist Student Athletes Foundation will host a showcase for Richmond area high school basketball players ahead of the start of classes, it has been announced.
The event will feature games for high school girls and boys on Saturday, Aug. 31, at Hermitage High School, 8301 Hungary Spring Road, according to William T. Carter, founder and director of the foundation he established to boost the number of student athletes gaining college scholarships.
The girls’ game will be at 1 p.m. and the boys game will be at 3 p.m., Mr. Carter said.
The event is dubbed the 1st Annual William L. Carter High School Back-to-School Classic, and is named in honor of Mr. Carter’s father, a longtime volunteer with the foundation who died four months ago.
