Community basketball tourney aids nonprofit

Hundreds turned out for a community fair and three-on-three basketball tournament at the Neighborhood Community Center this weekend, according to a news release.

The C3 Basketball Tournament winning team was Costa Mesa Police property aide Erika Soto, Costa Mesa Recreation Field Ambassador Brandon Diaz and Pastor Eric Wayman from Lighthouse Coastal Communities Church, the police release said.

Saturday's festivities included a kids area with a bounce house and face painting. Mika Community Development Corp. and the city's police and fire association's provided food. Local retailers like Target supplied raffle prizes.

All proceeds benefited Mika's projects in low-income neighborhoods.
