Basketball with the KW Titans

Updated Friday January 19, 2018 by Kitchener Sports Association.

Photo: After the meeting in the Subscribers' Lounge at the Aud, we took in the KW Titans basketball game. KSA presented a cheque for $2,500 (KSA Fee-assistance Program) to KW Youth Basketball. KWYBA's Executive Administrator, Mike Quigley, is shown accepting the cheque from KSA Director Rick Weinstein at centre court before the game. (KSA raises funds for local sports groups from the sale of 50/50 tickets at Kitchener Rangers home games -- and now the KW Titans home games as well!) KSA is pleased to be able to provide KW YBA with financial support for its subisized fee program so everyone gets to play.
