No Regrets Basketball Tournament

No Regrets Basketball Tournament

The inaugural No Regrets Basketball Tournament, hosted by the Quinn Keast Foundation (QKF), took place December 10-12th in the gymnasiums of some of our local North Shore high schools. Digby Leigh & Company, along with ten other sponsors, provided support to the foundation to bring this tournament to life. 

Nearing 10 years of existence, the Quinn Keast Foundation has hosted basketball games, built outdoor courts and awarded scholarships to numerous high school students, all while taking the ‘No Regrets’ approach. It was with great pride and excitement that the Quinn Keast Foundation took on the responsibility for the operation of this tournament that was formally known as The North Shore Invitational Basketball Tournament. It only seemed fitting that this long time staple tournament of North Shore basketball be re-branded as the “No Regrets Basketball Tournament”.
