Shoot Down Cancer Classic

Saturday and Sunday at St. Augustine Prep

Tickets: $6 each day

Former St. Augustine assistant coach Dave Catalana will run a showcase to benefit the Shoot Down Cancer Foundation, which raises funds for The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Catalana and his wife, Beth, created the foundation because their son Garrett was diagnosed with cancer in 1995. He survived and is now 24, a graduate of Saint Joseph’s University and a huge 76ers fan. Garrett works in the Philadelphia Union’s Finance Department as the treasury coordinator.

The 18th annual event features eight teams ranked in The Press Elite 11 – No. 1 Haddonfield, No. 3 Wildwood Catholic, No. 4 St. Joseph, No. 7 Moorestown, No. 8 St. Augustine; No. 9 Paul VI, No. 10 Pleasantville and No. 11 Millville.
