"Employees and elected officials representing the City of Greensboro and Guilford County meet at 2 pm Saturday, December 13 at Griffin Recreation Center, 5301 Hilltop Rd., for fun, fellowship, and a basketball game. The basketball game is the second of three sporting events between the two government entities in the battle for the Guilford Cup. A charitable component will be included in all of the games. Attendees of the December 13 event are encouraged to bring canned food items for Greensboro Urban Ministries.
Teams comprised of employees and Council/Commission members met on the gridiron in September for a flag football game, with the City emerging victorious, 18-12. In addition to the basketball and football games, the teams will meet on the diamond for a softball game in the spring of 2015. A points system is being developed based on winners of the athletic events and volume of donations to the selected nonprofits that will receive charitable contributions. The government team with the most points will be awarded the Guilford Cup.
