NECAT’s very own case worker Anthony “Big Time” Seymour coordinated a special community event in Mattapan on Saturday. His organization, Youth in Crisis – a long-standing NECAT partner – held its 20th Scoops and Hoops event at Ryan Park.
Attended by Governor Charlie Baker, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, Suffolk County DA Rachel Rollins, among many other community leaders. “Scoops & Hoops” has become a beloved community tradition. This year, 15 basketball teams from the DCR Summer Nights Program competed in a day-long tournament, there were activities for kids, and live entertainment from the amazing James Brown Impersonator, Tony Wilson with his full band.
Several NECAT students worked the grill, providing burgers, snacks and refreshments to hundreds of attendees.
