Roosevelt Island Community Outreach Basketball Game Between Public Safety Department And Youth Center's Parents Thursday November 11 At Sportspark Court

From the Roosevelt Island Public Safety Department:
As part of our Community Outreach Initiative, the Public Safety Department has teamed up with the Youth Center and will be hosting a Community Basketball Game on Thursday, November 11th from 6 pm to 7:30pm at the Sportspark Basketball Courts.

The game will be played between the Officers in PSD and the Youth Center Parents.
In the summer of 2009, the Public Safety Department  played a game of Basketball at Blackwell Park with members of the Roosevelt Island Youth Center - now it's their parents turn. About the game with the Youth Center, Roosevelt Island Public Safety Department Director Keith Guerra  wrote at the time:
The Youth Center team came out victorious with a 62-60 win over the Public Safety Department. Many folks in attendance commented on what a great game it was. But, more important were the new relationships that have been forged by this event. The players from both teams went back to the Youth Center afterwards and talked over Pizza and Refreshments. Kudos to Charlie DelFino and Coach Steve Morgan for their involvement in the festivities.

I was at the game last year and enjoyed it very much. This year, my neighbor and I will be participating in the game.

I hope they have BenGay and Ice on the sidelines. LOL.

Good game this year as well. This time the teams were mixed and PSD Officers were on both sides.

The 20 year-old kid who made 7 or 8 three pointers was the game MVP.

Nice job by all involved.
