OC PBA & Chamber of Commerce Present Tipoff Weekend

The Ocean City PBA Tipoff Weekend, in its 11th year, will take place in the Dixie Howell Memorial Gymnasium at Ocean City High School on December 20th and 21st and is being presented in association with the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce.

This event features boys and girls basketball teams from Cape-Atlantic League schools. Many of the games match teams from opposite conferences within the Cape-Atlantic League who do not otherwise play during the season.

This year’s Ocean City PBA and Ocean City Chamber of Commerce Tip-off Weekend will feature six schools in boy-girl doubleheaders – Ocean City, Willingboro, Absegami, Holy Spirit, Atlantic City and Shawnee. In addition, both Mainland teams will play, though on different days.

“We are proud to work with the Ocean City PBA to support this event. Ocean City provides the perfect setting to showcase the games which bring in families from across the region,” says Michele Gillian, Executive Director of the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce.

For the past three years, the players from each participating team have brought toys and non-perishable food items to Tipoff Weekend which was distributed within the community by the PBA. The teams will be doing that again this year.

All of the proceeds from the four basketball events created and operated by Prime Events benefit The Edythe T. Selvagn Memorial Scholarship Fund.
