Nick Epifano, owner and operator of the McDonald’s of Fayette County & Jamestown, has announced that the annual McDonald’s Holiday Basketball Tournament will return starting Monday, Dec. 27.

This is the 13th year that Epifano’s McDonald’s has sponsored the event, which started about 23 years ago.

The tournament will feature the Boys and Girls Varsity and Reserve basketball teams from Miami Trace, Madison Plains, Greeneview and London high schools.

Each year, two of the schools receive on a rotating basis a $2,000 stipend to use for purchase of new uniforms or equipment.

This year, London and Madison Plains are the designated schools. All other money raised through ticket sales is divided equally between the four schools which can go toward their athletic departments.

Tickets will be $7 per person for the evening varsity division contests and $5 per person for the day reserve sessions.

No passes or other specials will be accepted.
