Everyone enjoyed drinks and snacks from sponsors Boloco, Chicken & Rice Guys, 9 Miles East, Briggs Hard Seltzer, Archer Roose Fine Wines and Athletic Beer Company.  During the tournament, participants and spectators had the opportunity to learn about BUILD student businesses and how to become a mentor.
