Sell Side Challenge
Several years ago, childhood friends Tom Palenschat of Zelman & Associates and Tim Martin of Gallagher Sports came up with an idea to hold a basketball tournament to raise support and awareness for A Kid Again. A Kid Again was selected as the charity of choice because Tim has been a board member since 2008.
On Saturday, January 25th a group of Financial Industry Professional made this idea a reality and took their competitive nature to CSU’s Woodling Gym to battle for the title of the Sell Side Cleveland Challenge Basketball Tournament. The tournament consisted of employees from seven locally prominent sell side firms, including Cleveland Research, KeyBanc Equity Capital Markets, Longbow Research, J.P. Morgan, Northcoast Research, Stifel Nicholas and Zelman & Associates. The winning team Baller's United consisted of employees from JP Morgan and Stifel Nicholas. Congratulations!
All tournament proceeds, including team registration fees, donations, and fundraising efforts went directly to the Northern Ohio Chapter of A Kid Again which resulted in over $18,000 raised!
This amount will take 200 children with a life threatening illness on adventure allowing for them to leave illness behind and to be a kid again.
Thank you to all of the firms and the participants that played their hearts out on the court, and gave with their hearts to Northern Ohio Chapter of A Kid Again!
