Scott Lindsey, Senior Vice President of Rafferty's Restaurants, presented a ceremonial check to Edmonson County High School Athletic Director Kyle Pierce to cover the costs associated with the eleventh annual local basketball event.
In addition to taking care of the event's finances, Rafferty's also provided food for all players, coaches, staff members, and media personnel on Thursday night.
Lindsey, an Edmonson County native, helped bring the tournament back to Edmonson County more than a decade ago. The support from Rafferty's is a direct investment back into the athletic programs at Edmonson County High School.
Pierce said in an earlier statement that Edmonson County is fortunate to have Lindsey and the people at Rafferty’s to help bring the event to our community. "I know many of our people do, but if you get the chance, make sure to visit Rafferty’s or Double Dogs to show our appreciation."
Four different teams competed in the classic: Edmonson and Adair Counties, as well as Jeffersontown and Franklin-Simpson. Jeffersontown's boys finished 3-0 while Edmonson County's girls finished first at 3-0.
