America East Tournament to Bring Economic Boost to West Hartford

Next weekend’s America East Tournament to be hosted at the University of Harford will bring a much needed multi-million dollar economic boost to West Hartford and the Greater Hartford region. And it costs the university nothing to throw the party. Revenue generated from ticket sales, hot dogs and souvenirs should more than cover the bill.

The fun begins Thursday, March 4th and continues through the weekend.
