Anchorage, Alaska – Marking the end of an era, GCI is offering up 50,000 reasons for fans to send the GCI Great Alaska Shootout basketball tournament off with a bang.

“GCI is proud to be the title sponsor of the GCI Great Alaska Shootout, an iconic Thanksgiving event.” said Paul Landes, senior vice president, GCI Consumer Services. “For four decades, the Shootout has been part of Alaskans’ Thanksgiving traditions and has helped mark the unofficial launch of the holiday season.

The tournament kicks off with the women’s tournament on Tuesday, Nov. 21 and wraps up with the men’s championship game on Saturday, Nov. 25.
