As part of East Coast Bump’s purpose-filled initiative, and on behalf of McDonogh School, ECB will be making a financial contribution to the David Lunn, Jr. Foundation. David Lunn, Jr. is a highly respected name in the Baltimore community. He was an incredibly high energy, high value, and high impact personality throughout our city. David also starred as an elite basketball player at McDonogh School, the University of Delaware, and ultimately, as a professional basketball player overseas.
On January 5th, 2019, David suddenly passed away, but his enormous heart, immeasurable selflessness, and passion for life continue to be felt in our city, in our surrounding counties, and everywhere in-between. ECB’s ongoing contributions to The David Lunn, Jr. Foundation will go on to provide additional resources and opportunities for select Baltimore City student-athletes chosen by the Lunn Family.
East Coast Bump will also be making a contribution to each school involved in the event. Those contributions will be used to add additional layers to the support already provided to their young men.
Tickets for The East Coast Bump begin at $15 for General Admission.
There are a limited number of court side tickets and they are reserved seating for $20 and $25 in the lower bowl.
Stay for all three games for one price.
Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.com and the UMBC Box Office.
As host of this event, McDonogh School’s support is providing a tremendous opportunity for all participating Baltimore student-athletes to be seen and recognized on a national stage and to create a lasting memory for the Baltimore Basketball Community. So enjoy the event, make noise, respect the game, and leave feedback for ECB so it can continue building a better experience for Baltimore.
