As lifelong residents of Chelsea and graduates of the Buckingham Browne and Nichols and Chelsea High School, we are actively involved with the youth of Chelsea and are dedicated to inspiring them to pursue their education past the High School level. Cesar and I have witnessed many positive changes within our city, yet, there continue to be setbacks many youths of Chelsea experience as well. After years of sitting back and seeing everything take place, we realized it was time to make an impact. We instantly thought of The Let It Fly Classic
"One man can be a crucial ingredient on a team, but one man cannot make a team." - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Every year since 2015, on the Second Saturday in August, the basketball tournament calls on the region's best talent from Boston and the Greater Boston Area. After costs, all profits raised via fundraising are used to provide scholarships for students at the local high school, Chelsea High School.
It is our hope that The Let It Fly Classic becomes the gold standard for showcasing premiere high school talent all while supporting students through scholarship programs.
