After a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony, a basketball clinic was held for members of the Lee Wetherington Boys & Girls Club. “I was honored and proud to be the recipient of the 2023 Lifetime Achievement Award presented to me by Nancy Lieberman Charities. This award provided me with the opportunity to select a youth group that would benefit by having a regulation-size basketball court in my name built for them.  My selection was the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties and with the help of Lee Wetherington, we were able to make this a reality. A big THANK YOU goes to Nancy Lieberman who has done wonders for so many young people with her Nancy Lieberman Charities events and programs.” said Basketball Hall of Famer The Dream Court is a supersized high school regulation size, 64-by-94 feet, and includes two new basketball goals.
