Taco Del Mar Title Sponsor for EmD3-On-3
Taco Del Mar, with over 50 locations in the Seattle are, has signed on as title sponsor for the third annual EmD3-On-3 to be held August 8 and 9 at Emerald downs.
Western Washington's largest outdoor basketball tournament, EmD3-On-3 features some 1,000 players on 250 teams in 24 categories, all competing on 30 courts in the north parking lot. Last year, over 6,000 spectators attended the two-day event.
Event coordinator Bob Fraser said Taco Del Mar is a big backer of athletics in the area, supporting the Seahawks, Huskies and Aaron Brooks' Drills and Skills and many others.
"Taco Del Mar really stepped up and made a commitment to EmD3-On-3," Fraser said. We're proud to have them on board.
Jeff Masterjohn, Franchisee Board Chair for Local Advertising, said EmD3-On-3 is a great fit for Taco Del Mar.
"Our stores are very community-oriented," Masterjohn said. "We're involved with several athletic teams and programs, and EmD3-On-3 is a fantastic event. We're excited to participate."
Some 50 local sponsors will be involved in this year's EmD3-On-3. All net proceeds from the event go to local charities.
Registration at $120 per team continues through July 26 at www.emd3on3.com. Teams are divided into five categories: Youth, High School, College, Adult and 40-plus. Each team is guaranteed three games and each player receives a tournament Tank Top for participating.
