The Jim Green Memorial is an indoor / outdoor 3 on 3 basketball tournament. conceived in 2012, the Jim Green Fund raises money for members of the DTES. The tournament takes place in the Woodwards atrium and courtyard each summer, with food, drinks and music provided by the Charles Bar and Blueprint.
Jim Green was an amazing man who was everything from a longshoreman, taxicab driver, community activist, non-profit housing developing to municipal politician, university instructor and regular at The Charles Bar. Longtime Charles Bar manager and friend to Green, Kalisha Reid, wanted to organize an event to pay respects to such a great man, and put together this tournament to help keep his generosity alive.
