Danny Rumph Classic
The Danny Rumph Classic Basketball Tournament has become one of the premier basketball tournaments in the city of Philadelphia and the signature event for the Daniel E. Rumph II Foundation. Our tournament is held in honor of Danny as a tribute to the game he and so many others love. Danny died of a heart condition in 2005 at The Mallery Recreation Center, now the Daniel E. Rumph II Recreation Center. Mike Morak and some other friends started the first Rumph Classic basketball event. And what started out as something small in Philly has grown to one of the east coast’s most popular summer events.
The Danny Rumph Classic is the Daniel E. Rumph II Foundation’s signature fundraiser event held every year in August. This event brings the City of Philadelphia together over a span of five days to enjoy celebrity and community basketball games dedicated to a great cause. We draw over one thousand fans from all around the Tri-State area, each day. Proceeds from this event goes toward the foundation’s youth programs and community service initiative.
