Hoops for Hope Celebrity Basketball Event | May 19 | 6 PM
We work to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the nation’s well-being and give back and support our neighbors. Every day we work side by side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together. That is why at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We recognize that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given an opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
Each year the YMCA hosts its annual Hoops for Hope Celebrity Basketball Event. Last year was the first year we included a High School Three Point Shoot Out along with our Celebrity Basketball Game. The three point competition was such a success we will be including it again this year. We invite each high school to nominate one male and female to represent their school. The first and second place boy and girl will receive a check for their schools athletic program.
In 2017, we will serve more than 8,000 youth in sports leagues, summer camps, swim lessons, swim team, Y Time and after school and evening programs. One out of four of our families will receive financial assistance to participate in these programs. Contributions raised at our Hoops for Hope Event will be used to support these youth. Some of the funds raised will go directly to local high schools.
There is a $5 suggested donation for this event. Take a look at the program flyer for more information.
