The 1st Annual Model Basketball Tournament
Basketball, food, fun, drinks, art, music, and models – sounds like a great time to us too!
It’s time to get excited. A first-of-its-kind athletic tournament in New York City with agency-represented models and social media influencers is slated to happen at the close of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Model Basketball Tournament will be a 3 on 3 tournament played by agency models taking place on Sunday, September 17 at 2pm, and some of TRUE’s male models are among the bunch! Model Basketball’s goal is to add a new dimension to the festivities of fashion week. It’s an event that celebrates the sporting aspect of the industry, recognizes the brands that shape our daily identities, highlights artistry, and gives back to the community – what could be better?
In addition to the athletic tournament, there will be DJ sets, prizes to raffle off, product giveaways, an art exhibition, and various musical artists performing. Harmless Harvest, Dang Foods, Givn Water, The Skinnys, Salmiel, and Nature Valley Foods are among the product sponsors, along with EFM Menswear, Deveaux, CP Company, T-Christopher, KenniandElle, and Hoop Crate who are the team sponsors. 8-10 of the top modeling agencies in New York are officially participating, which means about 40-50 male model wills be playing in the tournament.
There’s much more to this tournament besides just fun and good times though. The best part is, part of the proceeds raised during this tournament will go to youth basketball programs and to buying shoes for underprivileged children.
Join TRUECares for this tournament and watch as some of our models fight for the tournament win!
