VAN WERT — Jan. 4, 2020, the Van Wert County YMCA hosted its first weekend of School League Basketball Tournaments. Tournaments are held every Saturday, 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., until Feb. 8, 2020. The public is welcome to attend and cheer on the upcoming basketball stars.

Each week the YMCA will donate half of the door proceeds to a nonprofit organization. The first week the YMCA was able to donate $730 to Love Inc. The next game was held on Saturday, Jan. 11 and door proceeds benefited Mercer Residential Services Inc. (a program that works with developmental challenged adults)

The YMCA thanked the community for not only making this donation possible but also for coming out to support local schools.
