A local organization that works to better the community donated $3,000 Thursday to help stage the Houston Community Foundation Boys Basketball Tournament Jan 15-20 at Tiger Fieldhouse.
The presentation came during a monthly meeting of the group. This year’s tournament will feature Houston, Cabool, Salem, Fordland, Bakersville, Couch, Summersville and Van Buren.
The public also can participate in a hoops contest. A chance of a cash prize costs $1 a ticket or a can of food that goes to the Texas County Food Pantry.
