Adam Ward Classic set for February 3-4
SALEM, Va. (WDBJ) - The Adam Ward Classic will be held February 3 and 4.
The majority of the proceeds will go to the Adam Ward Scholarship Fund.
“This is a great way to honor Adam Ward’s memory, as well as all of the others who have been touched and affected by his passing,” said Western Virginia Basketball Officials Association Commissioner Jerry Spangler. “I think Adam would be pleased we are doing this through the game of basketball.”
Ward, a WDBJ7 photographer, was shot to death along with reporter Alison Parker during a live report in 2015.
To date, the Adam Ward Classic has contributed over $80,000 to the Adam Ward Scholarship Fund.
