Santa Maria High School to host Thomas Fire fundraiser basketball tournament

Posted: Updated:

Santa Maria High School is hosting a boys basketball fundraiser tournament in benefit of those affected by the Thomas Fire. 

The tournament will be on Tuesday, December 19th and Thursday, December 21st. Both games have a tip-off time of 6 p.m.

Tuesday's game is against Channel Islands High School and Thursday's game will be against Foothill Technology High School from Ventura. 

The Thomas Fire has forced many game cancellations in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties including a tournament Santa Maria boys basketball was going to play in held in Carpinteria.

Head coach David Yamate thought he could offer a chance for the Saints to play as well as some of the teams affected by the Thomas Fire; some teams haven't been able to start their season yet. 

"There are so many levels of importance, the first one is to raise some money for the red cross Carpinteria. That's first and foremost. The second one is getting some games for these kids who haven't played yet," said Brian Wallace, Santa Maria athletic director.

Tickets are $5.00 and all the money raised will be donated to the American Red Cross.
