Participants are still buzzing with leftover excitement from the 2023 SERC MLK Basketball & Cheer Tournament hosted in Goldsboro, North Carolina, January 13-15th. Housing Authorities throughout the Southeastern Region of the United States traveled during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday with their youth, families, coaches, and staff to an incredible weekend of thrilling competitive sports, exciting educational opportunities, and positive cultural experiences.

The celebration did not disappoint this year as the multi-site event took off Friday at 6 pm at Dillard Middle school. The Housing Authority of the City of Goldsboro (HACG) staff brought out all the bells and whistles for over 300 youth attendees. Rousing laughter and cheering ignited the basketball court, where celebrity radio personality Kariana Taylor (Kay-Tee Radio, 92.7 Jamz Goldsboro) and local DJ C-Rai helped get the party started with incredible music setting the tone for a fun-filled kick-off experience

The weekend’s keynote speaker, Harlem Globetrotters legend Dexter “Loveboat” Williams, wowed the crowd proving why he was named one of the “World’s Best Basketball handlers” and offering words of motivation and inspiration for all ages.
