St. Mark School in St. Paul will host a benefit basketball tournament for seventh and eighth grade boys from Thursday, Dec. 30, through Sunday, Jan. 2, at the school’s gymnasium, 1983 Dayton Ave.

Boys basketball teams from: Nativity, St. Mark, St. Peter Claver and Christ Household of Faith, all in St. Paul; and Transfiguration in Oakdale will take part in tournament games each afternoon, with the final games set for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Jan. 2.

Tony Hernandez, tournament director, said that last year’s event, which raised almost $1,000 for the Highland Life Care Center, was created to revive an old school tradition and, more important to, “Promote a culture of life and family through a C.A.A. basketball tournament.”

All proceeds from the $2 admission fee and concessions will benefit St. Mark Athletics and Families Helping Each Other.
