After the success of last year’s tournament, Hoops 4 Hope (https://www.hoops4hope.org/) has announced that they will host the second annual ‘H4H East End 3’s 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament’ on Saturday, August 12th at the East Hampton High School (2 Long Lane, East Hampton, NY 11937). The event will begin at 8 a.m. and each team must have a minimum of three players and a maximum of five. There will be a men’s and women’s division as well as a bracket for kids (ages 13-17) and adults (18 ). A grand prize will be awarded to the winning team in each bracket.
The tournament will be hosted by Hoops 4 Hope, a non-profit founded in 1995 that works in underserved communities in Cape Town, South Africa, Harare, Zimbabwe and with local schools and programs to enhance community engagement. It will be played on the court that is dedicated to NYS HOF Basketball Coach, Ed Petrie. The fee per team is $400 and guests will be able to enjoy food and drinks, a silent auction and more. Cost to attend as a spectator is free, although donations are welcome and all proceeds will benefit Hoops 4 Hope. Hoops 4 Hope is also hosting a fundraising gala the next day on August 13th in the Hamptons, with more information to come shortly. Registration for the tournament is open now, visit hoops4hope.org to sign up.
“Hoops 4 Hope is proud to host the second annual East End 3’s 3-on-3 tournament. Last year’s event was a great springboard for creating more awareness about us, our mission and vision. Many people are under the impression that because of our name perhaps that we’re only about basketball, but that only scratches the surface of what we do. Hoops 4 Hope provides young people in South Africa, Zimbabwe and here on the East End with the fundamentals and opportunities to be happy, healthy and safe, both physically and emotionally. Similar to last year, we’re hoping to have fun and play some competitive basketball, but first and foremost help kids in the process,” shares Anthony Allison, Executive Director of Hoops 4 Hope.
