The inaugural Adidas Rose City Showcase in 2003 was a three-day event averaging 700 fans daily including “Hoop Junkies” of all ages and from all parts of the Portland metro area to support Portland’s own Inner City Players youth basketball programs. More than 50 volunteers worked nonstop to ensure that all areas of the event and hospitality were executed efficiently and professionally. Grant High School provided the perfect location for the event. It allowed a variety of socioeconomic groups from the entire “503” to gather and enjoy exciting summer basketball in a safe family environment. Head basketball coach Tony Broadus and his staff welcomed the Rose City Showcase and were a pleasure to work with.
