Summer Benefit 2011!
On behalf of the entire Hoops 4 Hope Global Team, we want to thank you those of you who supported our 13th Annual Summer Benefit on the evening of August 6th in East Hampton, New York, and throughout the summer months. 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.
Please know that your silent auction items, works of art, food & beverage donations, and overall contributions to our benefit aesthetic were integral to our event! From our local friends young and old, to our NBA friends, to Bakithi Kumalo’s troupe of African musicians and Zulu dancers, to the energy at the ping pong table, to Canard Catering’s slider bar, the reception was enjoyed by all! The displays were gorgeous and our silent auction surely added a generous dose of excitement to the evening.
Local Champ and recent Zim visitor Peter Kazickas spoke passionately about his recent African journey and the importance of sustaining our programs in Zimbabwe and beyond. The announcements concluded with Zimbabwean Country Director, Ngoni Mukukula, receiving the coveted UBUNTU Award!
