City Of Guards Scholarship Fundraiser will present the 2019 COG Scholarship award recipients. Also, we have the pleasure of showing the hometown hero/International speaker Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir’s(Springfield, Ma) documentary “Life Without Basketball” (directed by Jon Mercer and Tim O’Donnell of PIXELA PICTURA). Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir broke records and barriers on her way to becoming the first Division I basketball player to play wearing hijab. When a controversial ruling ends her chances at playing professionally, she re-examines her faith and identity as a Muslim American.
