Summer Benefit 2010 Recap!

On behalf of the entire Hoops 4 Hope Global Team, we want to thank those who supported us at our 12th Annual Summer Benefit on the evening of August 7th in Sagaponack, NY. Our event was a tremendous success and we raised an admirable amount of funds to help us sustain our organization through the remainder of the year.

The live gaming station provided by EA Sports added an active and exciting element to the evening, attracting children, gaming enthusiasts, and all of our sports fans and supporters. From our NBA friends Ed Davis (Toronto Raptors) and Bobby Simmons (New Jersey Nets), to NBA and ESPN Commentator Mike Breen, to welterweight boxing champion Andre “The Beast” Berto, to our guest of honor and underground basketball legend Bobbito Garcia, the reception was enjoyed by all!

Our event featured great food, wine and cocktails by Canard Inc., Raymond Wines and Robert’s Restaurant and Ketel One Vodka, respectively. Dan Bailey & Living Rhythm and the Levy Mwanza Band also entertained guests. There were silent auction tables full of sports related items and a live auction that featured five incredible vacation trips.

Thanks to all for helping make this year’s benefit a slam dunk!

Not able to make our annual summer event? We’d still appreciate your donations and contribution today!
