The players are the stars. The officials wear the stripes. They're coming together Dec. 7, 2019, for a five-game basketball showcase to salute our U.S. military veterans and their families.

The Central Maryland Board 23 of the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials (IAABO) presents the Stars & Stripes Salute, featuring 10 of the best high school basketball teams in Maryland and benefitting Folds of Honor. Folds of Honor provides educational scholarships to spouses and children of America's fallen and disabled service-members.

Join us at New Town High School in Owings Mills to see great basketball and support a worthy cause!

For IAABO Board 23 members, sign up to volunteer at the event here.
