After losing six of his family members in a 2006 car accident on the Bronx River Parkway, Dexter Gardiner formed the Gardiner Foundation, a Bronx-based organization aimed at helping community members who have been struck by the sudden death of a family member. This weekend, the organization (along with its sponsor, Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C.) hosts its tenth annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic, a two-day tournament that also features free food, giveaways (350 backpacks filled with school supplies, two iPad minis), and fun activities for children. The Gardiner Foundation will also supply four $1,500 scholarships to first-time college-bound students. For those interested in donating to the foundation, more information can be found here.
