Mary McDermott 3rd Grade Basketball Tournament – December 27 – 29

10th Annual Mary McDermott 3rd Grade Basketball Tournament

Immacolata’s annual Mary McDermott Basketball Tournament continues this year with the two fold purpose of raising funds to ensure quality, state of the art health care for kids at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital and honoring the memory of Mary McDermott. Mary loved Immacolata, sports and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon where she received exceptional care from birth. When Mary passed away suddenly in 2008, parishioners at Immacolata wanted to honor Mary’s life and created a tournament for third grade girls and boys. Now in its tenth year, this event gives many of these kids their first opportunity to play basketball together on a team. The tournament has raised $384,000 for Cardinal Glennon to support the region’s only pediatric hybrid cardiac catheterization suite. The Immacolata community’s support for this event continues to give countless kids the opportunity to get back in the game of life.
