Olathe police to sponsor Cy Middleton Memorial Tournament
Posted on Mar. 14th, 2013
On Saturday, March 30, the Olathe Police Department will sponsor and host the 6th Annual Cy Middleton Memorial Basketball Tournament.
The opening ceremony for the tournament will be held in the Olathe North High School main gymnasium and will start at 8 a.m.
This annual event is named in honor of Officer Cy Middleton, who served his community as a Olathe Police Officer for seven years until he passed away after his battle with cancer in December 2007.
A total of eight teams from the Johnson County and Wyandotte County area will compete. Other activities will include a bake sale, a silent auction and a barbeque lunch available for purchase.
Over the last five years, this event has raised over $45,000 for medical bills, scholarships and a donation to the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA). This year’s proceeds will go to three area law enforcement families.
Donations can also be sent to:
Cy Middleton Benefit Fund
C/O Enterprise Bank and Trust
