Tournament of Stars presented by EllisDon
Important Update on the 2021 Tournament of Stars
With the ongoing restrictions posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re unable to hold the 2021 Tournament of Stars presented by EllisDon. As always, the health and well-being of our participants and guests is our highest priority.
Thank you to our generous sponsors, our many donors and tournament players for your continued support of West Park and the patients we serve.
Tournament of Stars will return in March 2022, when hopefully we can all enjoy an exciting tournament with Raptors and other NBA alumni in safety and confidence.
On February 24, 2021, we were delighted to offer members of the Tournament of Stars community a special virtual presentation by TSN sportscaster Jack Armstrong, Honorary Ambassador for the tournament. The one-hour event was hosted by Paul Redmond, Volunteer Chair of Tournament of Stars and Managing Director & Head, Ontario & Atlantic Regions, Corporate Client Group – Royal Bank of Canada.

About the Event:
Tournament of Stars is a celebrity basketball tournament in support of West Park Healthcare Centre. The two-day event matches NBA alumni – many of them former Raptors – with hoop-loving West Park supporters for a fun but competitive day of basketball.
The event kicks off with the Friday night Celebrity Draft Party, an exclusive cocktail reception during which qualifying teams draft their celebrity player. The team that raises the most money for West Park gets top pick in the draft!
At the Saturday tournament, the excitement builds from the moment the teams hit the courts and the games begin.
Approximately 20 teams show their skills on the court with their NBA alum, enjoy great food and beverages, a Team Photo take-away and a silent auction, while families and friends enjoy the action from the bleachers and mingle with the celebrities. The event also includes a 3-point competition open to all attendees.
Tournament of Stars will be a family-friendly, fun-filled day of basketball in support of a great cause.
