    The Bowl Games bring football-mania to San Diego every winter, but spring activities to raise money for the annual events are celebrating other sports.

    The San Diego Bowl Games Association is putting together a basketball tournament and a golf classic, both open to the public – for an entry fee.

    On May 2 and 3, the Jack in the Box “Hoops at the Beach” will pit teams of three against each other at Bonita Cove Park in Mission Bay. The tournament will include a slam dunk contest, 3-point shootout, free throw challenge and elite division play.

    Players of all ages and abilities can enter. Entry fees are $50 for a youth team, $75 for a high school team and $100 for an adult team, and registration closes on May 1 at 5 p.m. Sunday is Family Day, so kids 3 to 8 years old can play too.

    Then, on June 22, the Holiday Bowl Golf Classic takes over the Country Club of Rancho Bernardo starting at 8:30 a.m. Early bird entries start at $250 a person and $1,000 for a foursome.

    All proceeds from both events go to the San Diego Bowl Game Association, a nonprofit.
