The Thomas Ashton Foundation announces the 12th annual Tommy Ashton 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament to be held on April 25 & 26, 2014 at St. Sebastian Parish Center.
From its beginning, the Tournament’s goal was to remember and honor Tommy Ashton, a young man who was killed in the attack on America on September 11, 2001. In memory of Tommy, the generosity of our valued sponsors, participants, volunteers and spectators has enabled the Tournament to donate over $260,000 to worthwhile charitable organizations and local projects (visit www.thomasashtonfoundation.com for a list of recipients).
This year's proceeds will be donated to worthwhile programs/projects benefiting St. Sebastian Parish and the Woodside community. In addition, a donation will be made to Delete Blood Cancer DKMS, a non-profit organization that leads the fight to delete blood cancer by empowering people to take action, donate bone marrow and save lives. With over 3 million registered bone marrow donors worldwide, Delete Blood Cancer DKMS is part of the world’s largest bone marrow donor center. Sadly, several tournament friends and supporters have been affected by blood cancers. We are proud to support this organization in their honor.

Dear friends and family,
Owen is loved by all of us so very much. His immense strength at the age of two to battle Aplastic Anemia is an inspiration to me and to so many of you as well. Owen is in need of a bone marrow transplant and at the moment there is no match in the Bone Marrow Registry. Owen needs our help to find a match.
On Saturday, November 9th from 9AM - 4PM, a bone marrow drive is being held to help find Owen a match.
I am asking for your help in two ways:
The first being that in order for the drive to run we need volunteers to staff it. There needs to be a minimum of 20 volunteers for the entire duration of the drive to help distribute and collect information from donors. There will be a brief training for all volunteers the day of the drive. I know it is a long day but the more donors we get the greater the chance it is that Owen will find his match. I am asking if it is possible for you to volunteer your time to help make this drive a success. Any time you are able to donate would be greatly appreciated. Whether you can commit to a two hour shift or if you would be available to stay the entire day would be a huge help. Feel free to ask your family or friends if they would like to volunteer as well. The more the better. Please let me know if you are able to volunteer and at what time.
The second is by spreading the word about the drive and helping to solicit as many donors as possible. I am attaching a flyer for the event. Please forward to it as many people as you can, post it in stores, local businesses, social media networks, etc.,. If anyone has any connection to the media whether it be newspaper, TV or radio please let me know, and if the Hogan family is okay with it, I will provide you with a press release and any other contact info you may need.
For anybody that is not available to attend the drive on the 9th, you can register online by clicking on this link
Thank you for all your help. I look forward to hearing from you so that this bone marrow drive can be a success.
