WHO WE ARE
The ILC 3on3 Basketball Tournament is held over Memorial Day Weekend at Immanuel Crystal Lake and is dedicated to bringing together our community for a common cause. Our vision is to be an annual event that joins people together for fun and competition. We see our community rallying together and caring for those that sacrificed for us!
From leagues being formed of former NBA Superstars, to tournaments hosting thousands of teams, to the inclusion of Men’s and Women’s 3on3 Basketball at the 2020 Olympics, 3on3 basketball is growing drastically in popularity. A 3on3 tournament strengthens the fundamental skills of basketball while creating a fast-paced and exciting game format which allows competition and fun to be had by all ages.
What is the Semper Fi Fund?
The Semper Fi Fund was chosen as the 2019 recipient of the proceeds for ILC 3on3 Memorial Day Basketball Tournament and Carnival. The Semper Fi Fund provides urgently needed resources and lifetime support for combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Case Managers from the Fund work one-on-one with service members and veterans to understand and support their individual needs right now and throughout their lifetimes. The Fund keeps its overhead extremely low in order to have the greatest impact on the lives of service members and veterans and has been awarded the highest ratings from watchdog groups: A+ from CharityWatch (one of only two veteran nonprofits to receive this rating last year), eight consecutive 4-star ratings from Charity Navigator (an achievement attained by only 3% of rated charities) and the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar.
