Chung’s Global Enterprise supports Mackeson-Rawle Toney 3×3 Basketball Classic
Chung’s Global Enterprise, one of the country’s leading construction companies, threw its support behind the November 9-10 Mackeson/Rawle Toney 3×3 Basketball Classic, which will be held at the Burnham Basketball Court in Georgetown.
The tournament, which will feature some of the top 3×3 teams from across Guyana, will see the winners pocketing $300,000, while the second- and third-place finishers are set to receive $100,000 and $50,000 respectively.
Tansy Plowell, assistant to the company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Cleon Chung, upon making her presentation to organiser Rawle Toney at its 622 A Industrial Reserve, Mandela Avenue location, said the entity was pleased to be associated with the tournament, given the fact it sought to rejuvenate interest in the sport.
Plowell added that Chung’s Global Enterprise is known for its generosity and were happy to support sports and more so the shortened format of basketball.
Toney thanked Plowell and Chung’s Global Enterprise, adding: “I’m happy with the support given to the tournament so far and I want to particularly thank Mr Cleon Chung and his company for coming on board.
“I consider this tournament a ‘give back’ to basketball, since the sport is badly lacking relevance in Guyana’s local sports landscape. I believe that the sport is presently left behind and I see this tournament as one of the ways I can help the Guyana Amateur Basketball Federation (GABF) and its affiliates to bring fans back to the sport,” Toney said.
FireSide Grill, the Guyana Lottery Company’s Let’s Bet Sports, Trophy Stall, Kester Gomes’ STUFF and ANSA McAL Trading are the other tournament sponsors so far.
