This year’s Pat Ward Basketball Classic is March 25, 2017 at Elizabethtown Central School. The memorial, started by Moriah Shock and founded by Retired CO Michael Tyler, was started after the tragic death (car accident) of Officer Pat Ward in December of 1991. Pat (37) left behind a wife and two young children. Each year this tournament raises money for several Elizabethtown graduates. To date we have raised over $20,000 for deserving seniors. NYSCOPBA has donated every year since its inception. NYSCOPBA’s donation goes a long way in keeping this tradition alive.
