This annual tournament is generously sponsored by the Rettger family. For those of you who don't know, Mike Rettger was a co-captain of the Panthers when he was in high school, was well known for his defense and very passionate about Panther basketball. He died tragically at a young age, and the family honors his memory and passion for FR basketball by sponsoring this tournament and a scholarship that is awarded every year to an outstanding FR basketball player.
As part of the tournament, the Rettgers conduct a Toys for Tots toy drive, and we ask that everyone donate a toy for the toy drive. There will be a big box to put them in at the entrance to the gym, and the Rettger family is usually at the table collecting the toys.
We have much to be thankful for this season, as families across the country are still dealing with the effects of natural disasters and other tragedies. We want to have a strong showing of support to the Rettgers and this noble charity they support.
Thank you all for your support of the Rettger toy drive, we look forward to some great basketball at the tournament this week.
