NextGen30, INC and the City of Cape May to Host Halloween 3x3 Basketball Tournament

NextGen30, a local non-profit organization committed to spreading kindness and promoting the health and education of Cape May County’s youth, has teamed up with the City of Cape May to present an action-packed event — the Inaugural NextGen30 Halloween 3x3 Basketball Tournament. Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 28, 2023, as the community comes together for some Halloween Hoops! 


Empowering Cape May County Through Acts of Kindness. NextGen30 embodies the spirit of giving back. Their mission is simple yet powerful: performing 30 acts of kindness annually in the communities that Genny Farnan loved, including annual scholarship awards for college-bound students. Genny remained an avid volunteer and committed community member through her battle with glioblastoma, up until her passing in 2016, before her 30th birthday. The organization founded in her honor focuses on empowering youth through health and education initiatives, continuing to make a positive impact in Cape May County.  


Trick or Treat, Come Compete — for a Cause! Calling all hoopers to run in the Inaugural NextGen30 Halloween 3x3 Basketball Tournament. With four brackets catering to different age groups — (5/6 Grade, 7/8 Grade, High School, and 18+) — there’s an opportunity for all to showcase their skills and have a blast on the court. This tournament welcomes all experience and skill levels, simply seeking participants who love the game and want to support a good cause.
