Facilities Tigers Win CCS Basketball Tournament

In a close semi-final game, the Facilities Tigers (light blue) squeaked by the Public Safety Enforcers (dark blue) to advance to the finals.

On January 4th and 6th, teams from eight Columbia administrative departments decended on Levien Gymnasium in the Dodge Fitness Center for some fun, competitive basketball games that raised nearly $3,000 for Columbia Community Service (CCS). The Columbia University Facilities organziation was well represented with teams from Facilities, Public Safety and Manhattanville participating. Facilities bested Public Safety in the semi-finals 32-28 and went on to win the championship with a 25-21 victory over the Athletics Department in a rematch of last year's final. Of course, the real winners are the soup kitchens, after-school programs, and other worthy local nonprofits supported by CCS via direct financial aid. Congratulations to all participants!
